Recruiting Program

Opportunities in business, nonprofits and government, and postgraduate fellowships and service programs

The Recruiting Program consists of on-campus interviews, off-campus interviews/job postings for full-time professional-level positions, and two annual career fairs. Each year more than 400 employers participate in the Recruiting Program, including more than 150 employers who conduct on-campus interviews during the fall and spring semesters.

Timeframe

Fall

  • Employers with formal training and leadership development programs typically recruit early in the fall semester.
  • Many of these competitive opportunities are open to all majors with the desired skills sets and competencies.
  • Research opportunities and APPLY EARLY, through postings in BCC  or directly to the employer in your career field or geographic area of interest.

Spring

  • Spring semester BCC postings include more diverse opportunities from a wide variety of organizations, locations and career fields.

On-campus recruiting

The recruiting program is managed through BCC. Use it to:

  • Review opportunities and employer events posted for Bryant students.
  • Apply to positions of interest.
  • Respond to interview acceptances and sign-up for campus interviews.

Off-campus recruiting and job postings

  • Employers in a wide variety of industries post opportunities in BCC but may not conduct interviews on campus due in part to the competitive economy. Opportunities posted in BCC include postgraduate service programs and fellowships.
  • Apply to opportunities by the deadline in BCC. Employers contact selected candidates directly to arrange phone or off-campus interviews. Be sure to follow up and network with contacts.

In addition to participating in Bryant’s Recruiting Program, you can launch an individual job search using our resources and consultation from our career staff. Regardless of your interests and geographic target, we have the resources and expertise to help you succeed.

Recruiting Program participation/BCC access

Full-time seniors who will graduate by May 2015 and full-time graduate students who will graduate by August 2015 are eligible to participate in the 2014-2015 program.

There are mandatory steps to participate:

Attend an orientation to the Recruiting Program (early fall recommended).

  • Seniors: This session is different than the Internship Orientation and is required in order to be able to apply to full-time job postings in BCC. Before attending, you may view full-time opportunities in BCC, but the system will not allow you to apply.  
  • Full-time graduate students: If you were a Bryant senior last year and participated in recruiting, you do not have to attend recruiting orientation again.  Request activation of your BCC account by stopping by the Amica Center to advise Nancy Friel, recruiting assistant, of your full-time graduate student status and complete the Recruiting Participation form. If you completed your undergraduate studies at another school, you must attend an orientation session per the instructions above.

Recruiting orientation sessions

  • Multiple sessions are held early in the fall and spring semesters.
  • Attendance in early fall is recommended to avoid missing early resume deadlines.
  • Check the events calendar, BCC Calendar or contact us.
  • If you miss the orientation, please stop by the center to discuss options.
