Recruiting Beyond Bates

Career Fairs and Consortia

Bates participates in several consortia to support employer recruiting at schools with students that offer similar skills and qualities as Bates students.

Our online recruiting system, Handshake, is an innovative platform that allows employers to post opportunities to Bates as well as many other Handshake partner schools.

The Liberal Arts Career Network provides a centralized job and internship database shared by 39 selective and highly selective liberal arts colleges around the country.

Bates does not currently host an on campus career fair, however, we participate in the Liberal Arts Recruiting Connection (LARC) a Boston-based career and interview day in early November, and the Selective Liberal Arts Consortium, which offers four recruiting events: two Video Interview Days and two city-based Recruiting Days in New York and Washington, D.C.
