Recruit On Campus

Career Fairs

Each semester, the School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering hosts a career fair for students to learn more about some of the leading technology companies and organizations in the United States, investigate open positions and career possibilities, and discover the skills and qualifications needed to become a competitive candidate in the future. While most attendees are Informatics, Computer Science, Library Science, or Information Science students, any Indiana University, Bloomington student whose coursework, skills, and interests make them a good fit for a career in technology is welcome to attend.

For more information, visit the Career Fair page.

On-Campus Interviews

If you are looking to increase your visibility with students and have a more productive recruiting season, we encourage you to schedule on-campus interviews. We offer next-day interviews following each career fair and on-campus interviews later in the semester. For more information about On-Campus Interviews, please contact Ellen Rodkey ellen@iu.edu.

HCI/d Connect

More than a career fair (though that is part of the day!), HCI/d Connect includes employer pitches, interactions with faculty, networking opportunities, a student design challenge, a visit to the design studio, and a mini career fair.  Employers looking to recruit UX design and/or research talent find this event a great way to get the word out about their company and their job/internship opportunities, as well as a unique opportunity to see students’ design process through the design challenge and presentations.  Interested companies can also register for next-day interviews.  For more information, contact Kate Caldwell caldwell@indiana.edu or visit the HCI/d Connect website.

Recruiting Policies

The School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering follows the National Association of Colleges and Employers Principles for Professional Conduct in Student Hiring.

Extending Offers

  • We ask that employers convey decisions to candidates within a reasonable time frame and communicate that time frame to candidates. As a general rule, employers should give students a minimum of two weeks from the date the offer is made to make their decision. If employers make full-time offers at the end of the summer to their interns, we ask that they give them until November 2nd so that these students may participate in full-time on-campus recruiting during the fall semester.

Exploding Offers

  • Exploding offers are unacceptable. Employers are expected to refrain from exerting any undue pressure on candidates to accept a job offer. Exploding offers (offers that do not afford a candidate the appropriate time to either accept or decline) put enormous pressure on students to make a decision before they have completed the interviewing process.
