On-Campus Recruiting - Handshake

Each year Cornell Career Services welcomes employers to campus to host interviews, information sessions, employer presentations, and coffee chats. If you are new to recruiting at Cornell, or would like to discuss your existing strategy, we are here to help. On-campus recruiting occurs at Cornell in Barnes Hall, where schedules are open to all eligible students at the University; and at the following college offices where the schedules are generally limited to the students in that college: Architecture, Art, and Planning; Agriculture and Life Sciences; Engineering; Human Ecology; ILR (Industrial and Labor Relations); and SJC Johnson College of Business (Hotel and Dyson). We manage our on-campus recruiting program using the Cornell Handshake system.
