On campus recruiting

Bates College welcomes employer visits to campus and can accommodate a number of different ways to reach out to our students. In addition to posting jobs on Handshake, our online recruiting database, many employers visit Bates for more personal interaction with students.

Information Sessions

Information sessions offer recruiters a chance to provide formal and informal presentations about job opportunities and the culture of their company.  We are happy to accommodate employers during the day or in the evening for information sessions with students.


Working with employers, the Bates Career Development Center offers a ranges of services to facilitate employers recruiting on campus, including promoting opportunities, collecting resumes and scheduling interviews.  We provide interview space on campus, and are also able to help coordinate phone and/or video interviews.

Career Fairs

Bates does not currently host a formal career fair, however, we participate in the Liberal Arts Recruiting Connection (LARC). We also partner with Colby and Bowdoin to offer other events, including the Maine Employers Career Fair which is typically held in February.  For more information about off campus recruiting, including career fairs and collaborative events contact the Bates Career Development Center.
