Job Postings/Career Opportunity Listings

Employers may log in to Handshake and add current career opportunities that are available with their company. The recruiting staff processes the job on the administration side of Handshake in the Career Center where the student can view it. These postings are also distributed to professors and departmental contacts in related departments for announcement in their classes and listing on their student list-servs.

Handshake allows you to post and manage your jobs, request on-campus interview space and schedules, register for career fairs and download resumes from job postings.

Faculty and Classroom Interaction

We offer the employer many opportunities to interact with our students and faculty such as employer-hosted faculty luncheons or participation in classroom discussions.

Employers may host luncheons for faculty and university administrators in one of two conference rooms located in the Lyceum or in a private room of the Student Union. These informal yet elegant settings offer employers an opportunity to meet our faculty and some of the invited administrators. Employers may use this setting for presentations about their company and career opportunities available for our students. The recruiting coordinator will assist with reservations and other arrangements for the luncheons.

Employers may wish to participate in classroom activities or lectures. Faculty and staff from various fields of study welcome your professional perspective, which reinforces the academic environment. Please check with the recruiting coordinator for arrangement information.

Career Workshops

Employers are often asked to conduct workshops that are open to the entire student body. Suggested workshop topics include “First Day on the Job,” “The Successful Candidate,” “Resumes that Work” or “Buzz Words for Our Business.” These workshops provide students an insight into the professional world and provide employers with an opportunity to introduce their company and company culture to a diverse student population. If you would like to participate in a workshop, please contact the recruiting coordinator.

Event Promotion

Employers are encouraged to post their opportunities and events on Handshake. Once posted, students have the ability to apply for openings and register for upcoming events in the Career Center. In addition to Handshake, the Career Center promotes events and spotlights employers on social media platforms. Please follow us on Facebook at University of Mississippi Career Center, Instagram @hireolemissrebs, and on Twitter @hireolemissrebs. If you would like to discuss event options in the Career Center, please contact the recruiting coordinator.
