Organizations are required to select their recruitment dates by creating a new user name and password or logging on as a return user on NACElink at https://desu-csm.symplicity.com/employers/ .

Internships provide students with the chance to gain hands on work experience outside of the classroom. When that experience aligns with coursework, it allows the student the opportunity to put what they’ve learned in the classroom to practice in real world settings. Many internships provide mentoring and professional development opportunities, and can be used by employers to create a pool of applicants for future hire.
If your organization is looking to establish a partnership to hire students from Delaware State University, please contact our office at (302) 857-6120 or email us at email@example.com .

The Professional Network is an excellent tool for employers to connect to DSU students and alumni. The network provides an exclusive, school branded database of professionals, alumni, and mentors, which includes comprehensive search tools and network member confidentiality controls.
Through the network, employers can serve as volunteer career advisors allowing DSU students and alumni to reach out and contact you regarding their career aspirations, your industry, and your employment expertise and experience. You decide how many students you want to interact with and how that interaction will take place (phone, email, or mail). You also have the option of expressing interest to participate on the DSU Career Services Advisory Board, panels, presentations, resume critiques, and mock interviews.
Those interested can sign up through your existing login in NACElink. If you are not an existing NACElink user, simply create a new user name and password at https://desu-csm.symplicity.com/employers/ . Please contact the Career Services team at firstname.lastname@example.org  or call (302) 857-6120 for assistance. And as always, employers may also use NACElink to review resumes, post job openings and showcase their business to current DSU students and alumni.

Career Fairs are held in October for fall semester and in March for the spring semester. The fairs are designed for employers to share internship and permanent employment opportunities within their organizations with DSU collegians and alumni. This interaction enables the employer to not only find suitable candidates for current openings, but also helps students at every grade level prepare themselves to be marketable, exceed employer expectations and to efficiently transition from the classroom to the formal occupational setting. Employers can make requests through Career Services to coordinate times in the classrooms where they present their company and industry highlights to the student body and faculty.

Our recruiting partners can help by providing donations of professional attire that we can place in the closet. Donations would need to be delivered or shipped to our office (address below) Monday through Friday between 8:45am – 4:00pm and would need to be received no later than Wednesday, 3/20/13 for sorting.
Monday 3/25/13 – Jazz Networking Mixer (6:00pm – 8:00pm) (Location: MLK 1st Floor Main Lobby)
This FREE informal business casual networking mixer is designed to help students develop their social skills in a simulated business social environment. As more employers are incorporating social events into the interview process, students need to be comfortable conversing with employers and amongst one another in these settings. There will be a brief welcome and overview, light refreshments, and jazz music while students and employers get a chance to mix and mingle. We would love to have you come and be a part of this great “simulation” event. Please RSVP so that we can properly prepare!
