How do I participate in the career fairs?

Career fairs are hosted on a University level and a school level. Most fairs occur between early September through early October during the Fall semester and late January through mid-February in the Spring semester. Registration requirements and information can be found on the individual websites for each hosting career center. Fee structures for each fair are located on their respective registration pages.

Do I have to go to different campuses to recruit?

No, it is not necessary.

Rutgers Business School is one school located on two campuses: Newark and New Brunswick. That means that your job posting will be viewed by students on both campuses. However, it is recommended that you visit the one or both campuses to build relationships with the students, staff, and faculty.

Can my company hire students without participating in on-campus activities?

Yes.

Although we highly recommend engaging with our students to establish your brand on campus, you can still hire students without visiting. If you only wish to post job opportunities, BusinessKnight is our internal job portal that is accessible by students and alumni.

Can I recruit students for unpaid internships?

The requirements to determine if an internship is unpaid are outlined by the U.S. Department of Labor, Wage & Hour Division under the Fair Labor Standards Act. It is highly recommended that for-profit organizations fairly compensate students for their participation in internships programs. This not only benefits the student, but it gives you a competitive advantage as well since most of the top students are more willing to work with companies that will compensate them fairly.

How can I identify groups of students based on specific criteria such as GPA, major/concentration, location, etc.?

When you submit your job posting to BusinessKnight to hire Rutgers Business School students, you can specify the criteria you would like the applicants to meet, and the posting will only be visible to those students. Filtering criteria varies for other University job portals. If you need assistance with more targeted recruiting, you can reach out to us directly.
