For Employers

Slideshow5 shutterstock_111147209Tap into a large pool of talent from 7 of the most prestigious liberal arts colleges in the country. All of our member schools are listed among the Best National Liberal Arts Colleges by U.S. News and World Report.

Our interview events connect employers with numerous top quality students from multiple schools at a single event.

The Selective Liberal Arts Consortium (SLAC) is comprised of 7 highly selective colleges that connect leading employers with top-notch undergraduate candidates for entry-level positions and internships. Since 1987, we have helped employers recruit students with diverse backgrounds, knowledge, and skills in a manner that is efficient and cost-effective.

Our Events

We will offer four virtual events for employers during the 2021-2022 season: three video interview events in September 2021, January 2022, and February 2022, and a virtual career fair in November 2021. Each interview event provides face-to-face interviews with talented, well-rounded candidates, all in one day via video conferencing.

To get started, participating employers advertise positions through our online recruiting system and review students’ application materials online to pre-select the applicants they wish to interview. We handle all promotion, scheduling, and logistical support for events.

The Winter Video Interview Days are timed to fit typical recruiting calendars. The Fall and Spring Video Interview Days create new opportunities for employers with recruiting needs in the fall and spring semesters. These events are ideal for employers seeking seniors for entry-level jobs, or seeking juniors for internships. Each event features a day of preselected interviews by Zoom or other online service. Employers are able to schedule up to ten pre-selected interviews per interview schedule.

Our Winter Virtual Career Fair in November offers employers an opportunity to host group information sessions via Handshake’s virtual career fair platform. This event takes place during the application period for the Winter Video Interview Days to provide employers with a venue to share additional information about opportunities with interested students.
