Internship or Entry-Level Recruiting

Our dynamic employer relations professionals are committed to producing a one-stop, results-oriented recruiting experience for your organization. Whether you are considering a single hire or multiple hires, recruiting on-campus or from a distance, our team will assist you to build your brand on-campus, post jobs and internships in a timely manner, and facilitate a seamless on-campus or virtual recruiting process. Colgate utilizes naviGATE, a Symplicity product, to facilitate your recruiting opportunity. Please contact us to discuss your hiring needs. Our employers engage with our students through:
  • On-campus and virtual information sessions: Relay details about your organization and the positions you seek to fill. Sessions are co-hosted with one of our student or staff hosts.
  • On-campus interviews: Pre-select student candidates for a day or more of on-campus interviews.
  • Resume collections: If you're unable to travel to campus, then we will help you build a deadline and campaign to electronically collect resumes and cover letters on your behalf.

All organizations that conduct information sessions, on-campus interviews, or resume collections will be required to sign our Employer Partner Agreement prior to finalizing deadlines.
