Employers: Career Management and Recruitment

"Employers seeking interns and new hires will find Herbert College students prepared with experience and the required skill sets to meet your job challenges."

Herbert College of Agriculture Career Fair: October 8, 2020

Interested in Recruiting our Students?

October 8: Herbert College Virtual Career Fair via HandShake: The Herbert College of Agriculture and Construction Career Fair typically brings in over 80+ corporate employers, government agencies, and non-profit organizations who are seeking students/alumni for full-time entry-level positions and/or internships. The Career Fair is for ALL College of Agriculture majors and degree levels.

October 5: Resume Critiquing: If you have expertise in a specific career area (interviewing, cover letters, resumes, etc.), we would be please to include you in this event! You will have the opportunity to work directly with student professionals and help them along this early part of their career journey.

Herbert Employer of the Day: This program offers a casual opportunity for you to connect with undergraduate Herbert College  students and build your brand on campus. Employer of the Day (EOD) is a free program, but employers are responsible for paying for their own parking while on campus. For Fall 2020, you only have one option to choose from for Employer of the Day:  VIRTUAL. On-Site EOD will potentially take place in the Spring 2020 once traveling and UTK visitor guidelines are more flexible.

Employer Spotlight: Employer Spotlights are live virtual Q&A sessions highlighting opportunities for students. They are moderated by Center for Career Development staff and recorded via a Zoom/ Facebook integration for students to either view in real time or to view at a later date.

  • September-November: Peak full-time recruiting season with high volume of internship recruiting
  • February-April: Peak internship recruiting and high volume of full-time recruiting
  • May: Undergraduate graduation (students may also graduate in December)

The University of Tennessee’s Handshake platform is a great way to gain access to undergraduate talent by searching resumes and posting job offers. Career fair registrations are also completed via Handshake.
