Recruit a DePauw Student
Experience Matters at DePauw -- DePauw students participate in an unusual number of experiences both within and outside of the curriculum in which they develop, use and excel in the work skills most important to employers. The combination of academic rigor and robust social experience at DePauw helps students become clear thinkers and socially adept employees who are engaged in their communities.
As you probably know, DePauw offers its students a contemporary liberal arts education. Its mission is to provide students with an integrated, multi-disciplinary approach to critical analysis, problem solving and the leadership skills required to translate what is learned into effective action.
DePauw students know how to think, speak and write effectively and within context. More specifically, we know from our previous employers and internship sponsors that DePauw students can manage projects from start to finish; demonstrate effective leadership and membership within work teams; and, finally, read, understand and interpret quantitative and financial data about organizations.
Resources available to employers include on-campus interviewing; publication of employment opportunities; and direct referrals of interested registrants, including alumni.

Host a Winter Term Intern- Winter Term is an integral component of the DePauw curriculum; students must participate in three Winter Terms to be eligible for graduation. One option for meeting this requirement is to complete a full-time (35 hours/week) internship during the month of January. These short-term internships are an opportunity to learn more about career options and build on professional skills, goals, and knowledge in a meaningful way. Students may shadow professionals, contribute to the special projects or research of an organization, and/or participate in the day-to-day operations of a workplace. Students must apply to us by October 5th to receive credit for their Winter Term internship opportunities. Students will be assigned faculty sponsors, with whom they will establish individualized learning objectives.

Information Table at the Union Building- We also invite you to come to campus and do a tabling in Union outside of the dining hall. This allows you to informally talk with students about your organization.
Content-based Information Session, Seminar or Workshop- Some employers find it easier to connect with students by offering a content-based workshop on an area of professional development like interviewing, networking, case studies, etc.
