How do I host an event on Campus?

We have 3 options for locations that can be used for recruiting events.  You can contact these locations directly to arrange your event. Please be sure to let us know the details so we can market your event! 

1.    Tresidder Memorial Union

2.    Stanford Faculty Club

3.    BEAM Room Rentals

How can I get information about my jobs and events to students?

Handshake is our key platform for information dissemination including job and internship postings and employer events.

Our Partners Program is a great way to get extra exposure. 

Do you have a resume book I can purchase?

Handshake allows customizable searching of students by class level, major, graduation year, and more.  Resumes for these students can be generated in bulk to a PDF document.

Because of these search features, we will no longer be providing a resume book as a service. ­

How can I connect with faculty?

·      Become a partner for invitations to special events and check with your industry consultant for other potential points of connection.

·      Stanford University also has Corporate Affiliate Programs connecting employers to faculty research projects, fellowships, scholarships and other academic department opportunities.

How can I work with student groups?

Consult with your Industry Specialist for the most relevant student groups. Please note that student groups must abide by University Policies when interacting with employers.

How can I become a mentor?

There are opportunities for "mentoring moments" with our many events and programs open to employers (ie. Career Treks, networking, panels, career expert meet ups.) Alumni employees may participate in our Stanford Alumni Mentoring Program.
