Employer Resources

The Office of Career and Professional Development (OCPD) welcomes employers to recruit students and alumni for school year, summer and post-graduate positions. The OCPD utilizes a variety of services in order to assist employers in meeting their recruiting needs.

Post a Job Online

If seeking to fill summer, part-time, entry-level or lateral employment needs, the OCPD encourages employers to submit a job listing on the web-based job posting system, Symplicity. This service is free for employers and they may create their own Symplicity account that enables them to post available positions. Employers may also send the information to the OCPD office for posting.  Click here to submit.
