Recruiting a Converse Student

Get connected to Converse! Let us help you discover ways to engage with our students as well as promote your organization. The Center for Professional Development offers employers and graduate and professional school recruiters the following recruiting opportunities.

Employers can advertise an internship or job opportunity on Purple Briefcase, our online career development system. These opportunities are seen directly by the students where they can “favorite” your company and are immediately notified of your job posting. Employers can also view student profiles to search for candidates.

Post your job or internship on Purple Briefcase

Our Internship Program encourages students to explore their educational and professional goals in a real world setting. Students create learning objectives that align with these goals and work together with their internship site supervisor to produce the best possible experience.
Students successfully complete credit-bearing internships in business, arts, health care, law, non-profits, the sciences and many other areas. Internships can be offered during the fall, winter, spring or summer.

Advertise a part time job to our students by sending an email with job information to Sabrina Wilson at Please include job description, responsibilities, pay, and contact information.

Give a presentation about your company or organization and promote current employment opportunities. An employer information session is a great opportunity for you to get in front of a targeted group of students. These sessions can take place in the classroom or in a private meeting room on campus. Students have the opportunity to ask representatives questions regarding their specific company/organization.
