Other ways to engage

Host an Employer Spotlight

Partner with Concordia

At Concordia University we have a genuine desire to work with partners in the community. We know that we can do more; for our students, our employees, and our communities, by working together.

Host a Recruiting Table

Connect directly with students during Recruiting Wednesdays event days. Organizations may reserve a spot in our Chapel Hallway from 9am until Noon during specific Wednesdays. To reserve a spot the Center for Academic Advising and Career Engagement requires employers to post a job or internship opportunity within Handshake, actively engage with the students and comply with principles for professional practice as sited by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), and not charge fees to the student to apply or begin working with the organization.

To schedule a table please call Stacy Tolomeo, Assistant Director of Industry Relations at 262-243-2216 or email

Host a Backpack to Briefcase session

For students entering the workforce, the stakes have never been higher. In order to shape uncommon graduates, we need to leverage the insights and best practices of today’s industry leaders. These lunch-hour TedX style sessions are designed to highlight your expertise and help our students make the transition from the classroom to the workforce. Topics can range from transferrable skills to networking or interviewing, to practical functions like organizing a meeting agenda. For employers who cater lunch, we’ll cater the student base to your needs. Whether you have a specific focus or take a more egalitarian approach, we would be happy to work with you to make this even mutually beneficial.

If you have questions, please contact the Center for Academic Advising and Career Engagement at 262-243-4499.

Host a site visit

Show them where the magic happens! For many employers, words simply won’t do justice to the meaningful impact you are making in the community and your respective industry. Although students love hearing about the great things they can do upon completing their degree, the experience of visiting a company, interacting with a panel of professionals, and seeing your work in-action can have a profound effect on their vocational goals. A picture may be worth 1000 words, but a site visit is worth 1000 pictures.
