UMW Fall 2020 Recruiting Options
Note: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are only allowing virtual recruiting options for the Summer 2020 and Fall 2020 semesters.
Post a Job or Internship
Handshake is UMW’s official job and internship database. Handshake allows you the opportunity to create an employer profile, post part-time and full-time jobs, internships, and volunteer opportunities, view student and alumni resumes, post events, and message our students. It is free for both employers and students to use.

Host A Virtual Recruiting Event
Virtual events are an impactful way for employers to connect with students. It allows students to ask live questions and interact with employers in their field of interest. Learn more about virtual recruiting events.
We can assist with promoting your organization, events, and positions to students and alumni for free! Complete our Employer Marketing Request Form at least 2 weeks prior to your event or application deadline.
