About the Recruitment Conference

The University of Notre Dame welcomes our most valued recruiting partners and top-tier prospective employers to our annual, free, Notre Dame Recruitment Conference.

What to Expect

The 5 goals of our conference are for you, as a recruiter or employer representative, to:

  • Learn more about our talented students through recent survey data
  • Hear directly from students and ask questions about what they find effective in a recruitment process and what they are seeking in an employer
  • Meet with our faculty to learn more about our academic programs and how you can partner with us
  • Gain insight into recruiting best practices through conversations with recruiters from other organizations
  • Find new ways to engage student talent at all levels (undergraduate, graduate, and professional students)

Our 2020 conference featured opportunities to engage with 21 faculty (including assistant deans, department chairs, and directors of undergraduate and graduate studies), 49 students (from rising sophomores through PhDs), and 37 career services staff.
