Post Job Opportunities
Posting your opportunities on CCO (using your NACElink @ Purdue account) is one of the best ways to reach Krannert/Purdue students and alumni and should be part of your recruiting strategy. The CCO website is Purdue's main recruiting portal and it is accessed by thousands of students every semester. Most of Purdue's career fairs are run through this website which increases student traffic. Even if you prefer students apply on your company website, you can post positions and direct students to your website to apply. Refer to our Job Posting Information to see the different options, our preferred format and tips for posting positions. It inclludes details for setting up on-campus interviews and resume collections (a preferred format).

Krannert Undergrad Coffee Hour
SMEF hosts coffee hour every Monday and Friday. It's an opportunity for recruiters, faculty, and students to interact in a casual atmosphere while opening up future networking connections. You can signup to sponsor the coffee hour when you register for the career fair.

  • Alumni “Adopt a Team” Program

    Krannert’s “Professional Career Management” course works to increase the competency of students in the “networking” and “informational interviewing” skill areas. Through the “Alumni ‘Adopt a Team’ Program” student class teams and alumni interact virtually in two informational interview sessions. Information sessions typically last an hour via Skype or telephone conference call as students ask you questions about your professional career path, market trends in your field, and how you balance work and life demands. In addition, you have opportunities to share your words of wisdom on “if you could do it all again” as well as ask students about their own career planning. To participate in this interactive program and receive more complete information, please contact Maureen Huffer Landis, Associate Director--Krannert Professional Development Center, via e-mail (mhuffer@purdue.edu) or telephone (765-494-7445).
