Hiring our Students

Both fulltime and part time jobs can be posted on Symplicity. The Career Fair is also a great time to find students that are the right fit for your company. We have a Career Fair every Fall and every Spring, and there will be a multitude of students looking for the opportunity to gain a full time position with a company.
Our Alumni seeking employment are also in our Symplicity database. If you are specifically seeking more experienced workers, you can indicate so on your job posting and resumes of Alumni specifically will be sent to you.
Sign up for Symplicity: Symplicity is the site Speed School uses to post jobs, events, workshops and more to students. To post your jobs and/or events for students, register for Symplicity on the Symplicity website as an employer. You can then post jobs, register for career fairs and events, and receive resumes from students that fit the specifications you’re looking for.
Info sessions are a good way to build your brand on campus. Hosting a session allows you to promote your organization, talk about company culture, share career opportunities, and meet prospective candidates. Information sessions are typically an hour long during lunch (12:00-1:00 pm) Monday-Friday. In that hour its best to provide a 10-20 minute presentation then 10 minutes for questions and the opportunity for networking. If you are interested in hosting a session Contact Brittney Forrest .(internal link to her meet the staff profile).
Reserve a table to promote your company on campus and meet prospective applicants. This is a good opportunity for students to learn more about your company and job openings. For more information contact Brittney Forrest (internal link to her meet the staff profile).

Guidelines & Policies
The Career defines Third-party recruiters as agencies, organizations, or individuals recruiting candidates for temporary, part-time, or full-time employment opportunities for other organizations rather than for internal positions. This includes entities that make referrals or recruit for profit or not for profit, and it includes agencies that collect student information to be disclosed to employers for purposes of recruitment and employment. Examples are employment agencies, search firms, contract recruiters, venture capital firms acting on behalf of their portfolio companies, and online job posting or resume referral services.
Third party recruiters may utilize Career Center job listing services, participate in on-campus recruiting but they may not attend engineering career fairs. They will be required to verify in advance whether they are recruiting for their own organizations or for their clients. Third-party firms who are recruiting for positions within their own organizations must clearly differentiate those opportunities from their client engagements. Failure to abide by these third-party requirements will result in loss of access to Career Center services.
Third-party recruiters representing client organizations must:
- Verify that they charge no fees of any kind to student or alumni applicants;
- Identify themselves as a third-party recruiter in their employer profile and all client job announcements;
- Provide accurate position descriptions and include specific client names in all jobs posted on Speed Symplicity;
- Agree to utilize Engineering Career Services only, and not contact other faculty and staff members in the Engineering School whose time is dedicated to other pursuits;
- Only release candidate information provided to the identified employer in accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). Re-disclosure of candidate information to any other parties is not permitted.
The Career Center has established these criteria for identifying appropriate entrepreneurial employment opportunities for promotion through its services. Start-ups must have progressed sufficiently in their business development process so that they can:
- Provide a company name, business address, website and email address, and identify a principal as the key contact;
- Verify that they are not seeking potential partners or investors;
- Confirm that they have obtained the necessary business licenses and Tax ID’s as well as sufficient funding, including identifying their funding model and investors, if requested;
- Offer positions for pay, not just for equity.
- Provide clearly defined organization and position descriptions in Speed Symplicity.
Those ventures who cannot meet these guidelines may recontact the Career Center at a later stage to discuss access to services.
