Recruiting Initiatives


Our Employer Engagement Team is ready to assist you in connecting with UofL Students.  Please contact us if you have any questions about the resources below:

Job Postings

Want a simple and convenient way to post your open positions to our 22,000+ students? Cards Career Connection powered by Handshake is here for you!  Cards Career Connection is the University of Louisville - University Career Center’s online job listing and career management database that connects employers to thousands of talented U of L students.  Having a Cards Career Connection account allows you to post your opportunities (professional full-time and internships positions) and track applicants.

Hosting Virtual Events 

If you would like to host a virtual event, you can do so by submitting a virtual event request through Handshake, providing the link for students to join the event, and then hosting your event through your chosen software. Virtual events are a great way to provide information and connect with students when you’re unable to make it to campus, and ensuring you’ve submitted it through Handshake increases our ability to promote your event to students.

The Handshake Help Center provides information on Setting Up a Virtual Event.  You can also invite students from multiple universities to participate in the event.  Organizations are welcome to use their virtual meeting software of choice.  Two popular ones are Zoom and WebEx.  We recommend avoiding a platform that requires each student attendee to create their own account to attend.

Career & Graduate School Fairs

The University Career Center hosts several career and graduate school fairs during each academic year. These fairs are ideal for employers and graduate school representatives looking to recruit University of Louisville students. Past and upcoming fairs can be found below. Review each fair to assess which fairs meet your recruiting needs!

Information Tables

Due to COVID-19, Information Tables are postponed until Fall 2020.  Information tables provide you with a valuable opportunity to discuss your organization’s job opportunities with students in our Student Activities Center (SAC) during peak times.

Information tables are available Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m.  We ask that requests are submitted at least two weeks in advance using the Employer Information Table Request Form.

On-Campus Interview Room Reservation

Organizations can reserve interview rooms in the University Career Center. We provide recruiters with free parking adjacent to our building.  This option is available to organizations who create their own interview schedule(s) and need a convenient location on campus to interview students. The Student Activity Center is next door with several lunch locations.  To make arrangements, please contact one of our Employer Engagement Team members
