- On Campus Information Sessions, Displays, and Classroom Visits

Internship & Job Fairs
Our Internship & Job Fair is one of the best ways to reach the most students and alumni. Our fair takes place on-campus each semester. Information regarding our fairs can be found here or on your Bison CareerLink homepage.
On Campus Information Sessions, Displays, and Classroom Visits
Information sessions, displays, and classroom visits/presentations are a good way to brand your organization on campus and create interest in your company. To schedule a visit, please contact Monica Garvin at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please submit your request at least 3 weeks in advance of your desired visit.
Off-Campus Employer Information Sessions
Off-Campus Employer Information Sessions are a highly effective tool for generating student interest in your organization. They are designed to promote your organization through student visits to your workplace. The objective is to create opportunities by developing relationships that will increase participation of Gallaudet students and alumni in your workforce. The way that a visit is designed is up to your company. Students can tour a workplace, meet with various employees, and learn firsthand about different types of jobs and related opportunities within a career field.
The goals of the visits are:
- To introduce Gallaudet University students and alumni to your company.
- To enhance interest of Gallaudet University students and alumni in internship and employment opportunities at your company.
- To aid in your company's diversity recruitment efforts for a more inclusive workforce.
- To dispel fears about hiring people who are deaf.

On Campus Interviews
The Career Center provides a comfortable reception area and interview office allowing employers access to a computer, telephone, and videophone. You will need to request the space at least one-month in advance, provide a complete position announcement, and send promotional materials. Some interviews can be conducted virtually. Please contact Monica Garvin at email@example.com for details or to set up an on-campus interview session.
Mock Interview/Resume Review Sessions
Mock Interviews and Resume Review Sessions allow our students to practice their interview skills and receive feedback from employers on their resumes. Employers have successfully used these sessions as a recruiting tool. Students may sign up for 30 minute time slots allowing 15 - 20 minutes of interviewing and 10-15 minutes of feedback from you. These sessions help students to identify areas they need to work on before they do an actual interview or submit resumes for internship and jobs. Employers may participate for an entire day or during hours that are convenient to their schedule.
