The Office of Career Services works with employers and graduate school recruiters to connect them to our highly talented students.
We offer a range of effective services through Handshake, which includes job postings, career fairs, employer information sessions, on-campus recruiting, personalized marketing assistance and customized recruiting plans. We can help you pick and choose which programs fit your particular needs so you can recruit efficiently and easily.
Post a Job or Internship on Handshake
Handshake is the centralized online job listing portal accessed by The Claremont Colleges’ students and alumni users. Recruiters can post internships, full- and part-time jobs, and seasonal/temporary opportunities at no charge.
- Create an account on Handshake Note: If you have an existing account with Handshake, you can connect with us by clicking on “Schools” on the left hand menu bar. Click the “Find Schools” tab on the upper right hand side. Then type “Harvey Mudd College” in the search bar to connect with us.
- Click “Post a Job” tab. Go through the pages:
Attend Harvey Mudd Job and Internship Fairs
- For more information on the fairs, see Career Fairs page. If you are in Handshake already, you can register in the system.
Information sessions and tech talks are usually scheduled Monday through Thursday during lunch (noon–1 p.m.) or in the evening throughout the school year usually between 5 and 7:30 p.m. for a start time. (typically at 6 p.m. for maximum attendance). Information sessions/tech talks are requested through Handshake by clicking on “Create an Event”. Once your information session request is approved, the Office of Career Services arranges the meeting room, provides AV support and works with you to publicize your event. Companies may have events catered at their expense.
During the week of the fair, space is limited thus requests are first-come, first-served. We prefer to not schedule competing sessions at the same time to maximize attendance.
You can also do a virtual information session or event. Please contact Paul Hardister with questions regarding hosting an information session or tech talk.
Interview schedules to recruit students for full-time employment or for internships are requested through Handshake and by clicking on “Request an Interview”. Your organization has free access to interview rooms on campus, available year-round. You have the option of prescreening and selecting students to interview. Or, you can choose to have an open schedule, where students sign up on a first-come, first-served basis. Please contact Paul Hardister with questions regarding on-campus interviewing.
During the week of the fair, please sign up for Interview Day (the day after the fair) in the fair section on Handshake. You will be assigned booths in the Linde Activities Center (same location as the fair) to interview students. We offer Interview Day to be able to accommodate as many interview space requests as possible because in prior years we have run out of space. If you want to pre-select using Handshake, you may still do so by using the “Request Interview” feature.
Recruit Students for Graduate Programs
Promote your school’s graduate programs through information tables or sessions, or attend one of our career fairs. Information tables or sessions are requested through Handshake.
