Share employer contacts
After years of steady growth, the US economy has faltered, having a significant impact on the job market for new college graduates. Some faculty have employment or recruiting contacts that you have called upon for your own students. Others are very talented in preparing students to meet the needs of employers. We believe we can be even more effective if we address these challenges together in several ways:
Send us contact information:
- Who do you know that recruits for an organization in which our students and alumni would be interested?
- What companies would you like to see involved in on-campus recruiting in your field?
- Which professional associations have memberships that would benefit RWU students and alumni in your field?
- Refer all your contacts and friends to HAWKS HUNT, so they can register as an employer and/or as a mentor.
