For Students: Recruiting at Bates

The Bates Center for Purposeful Work strives to prepare students for the rigors, realities, and rewards of a meaningful career. We partner with employers of all sizes, from small nonprofits to multinational corporations, to match their needs to the skills and abilities of our students.

Throughout the academic year, we invite employers for info sessions, panels, workshops, interviews, and other related events. We collaborate regularly with our colleagues at Bowdoin and Colby, as well across the NESCAC schools, on joint recruitment activities and efforts to highlight what students from the top liberal arts schools in Maine and across New England have to offer.

We require all students who participate in campus recruiting activities to abide by our recruiting expectations, guidelines, and policies. We expect Bates students to conduct themselves professionally at all times during recruitment events and activities.

If you have any questions about recruiting policies and/or professional conduct, please consult with a Bates Center for Purposeful Work staff member.
