Whether you choose to recruit through career fairs, schedule on-campus interviews or the new webcam interviews, University Career Services (UCS) has valuable options for you to choose.
UCS invites you to partner with us in helping you reach your college recruiting goals. As you seek to hire the best and the brightest students, we’d like you to consider adding Georgia State to your recruiting schedule. Our student body is the best qualified and most diverse in our history. We have students from every county in Georgia, every state in the U.S., and more than 160 countries. Our students can choose from dozens of nationally ranked programs and more than 200 different majors, minors and degree programs, more than any other school in Georgia.
Employer Relations is the liaison between the employers and UCS. This office manages on-campus recruiting sessions. It provides an optimal environment for employers and potential student employees to interact. Review the Employer Posting Policies and view the Career Fair Guidelines. We look forward to welcoming you to the university.

Recruiters’ posting of flyers or other materials on the Georgia State campus must be in compliance with our Campus Posting Policy. University Career Services does not post employer flyers across campuses.

Use Handshake, Georgia State’s job board. You can search for full-time, part-time, internships and co-ops. You can also prepare to apply by working on your resume using Optimal Resume, showcasing your work in Portfolium and researching job options using the “What Can I Do With This Major?” online search tool. Look at O*Net, the Department of Labor’s report on jobs and future of industries, to see which jobs are predicted to grow in demand. And work your network: Let people know you are looking for opportunities.
Include on your resume the transferable skills you’ve acquired from your classes, projects, organizational involvement and leadership experiences. For example, if you were part of a volunteer activity, you learned about teamwork and communication. If you’ve practiced workplace skills in your classes (like data collection using Tableau, etc.), list them on your resume. Visit University Career Services during drop-in hours or set up an appointment for help getting started.
Every department that offers credit for an internship has different requirements and procedures. Get in touch with your department to learn about them. Remember to give yourself time to do everything needed in advance of the actual experience.
