Recruiting at the GSD
Career Services makes it easy for employers to feature your organization to students and alumni. Whether you have a hiring opportunity to promote; wish to host a presentation to current students; want to attend an on-campus recruiting event, or want to offer your expertise in a portfolio review, Career Services can help you. Please contact Career Services with any recruitment plans and questions.
Each Calendar Year, Career Services Offers Several Opportunities For Employers To Connect With GSD Students
GSD Career Fairs
One or more career fairs are offered in the spring term. Attendance is open to employers by invitation only.
Offer an on-campus information session at any time of the academic year. This is your opportunity to speak to students directly about your organization, the employment and/or internship opportunities available, and your application process. You may host a session virtually or in-person.
Interview Day (in-person/virtual)
Schedule a date to conduct first-round interviews at the GSD. Generally, interviews are scheduled between mid-February and early April but can be scheduled at other times as needed. Career Services will advertise your opportunities, and students will send resumes and design samples directly to you. Prescreen resumes and select the candidates who most closely match your needs.
Ready to meet our students? To request to schedule an information session or a virtual interview, please complete a recruitment session form at least 4-6 weeks in advance.
Interested in capturing students’ attention in a non-digital format? Consider designing a targeted poster or flier for your hiring opportunities, which are often overlooked in our digital age. To make your poster more noticeable, feature images of your design projects and pertinent information about your firm. Be sure to include a call to action, contact information, and include a QR code for easy access to your available opportunities. Posters and fliers can be mailed or emailed to Career Services to post in the GSD’s studio trays in Gund Hall. Recommended format and size: PDF,11×17.
To participate in any event or service, Career Services requires that employers review and agree to our Recruiting Policies.
