Partner With UNLV
Foster Recruiting Relationships With UNLV Students & Alumni
Aligning the UNLV campus to be responsive to 21st-century workforce needs and better prepare students for the changing workplaces of the future requires strong partnerships. Partnerships allow us to build robust talent pipelines to meet local, regional, and state demand.
UNLV offers several ways for your company or organization to develop relationships with future interns or employees, including attending campus-wide career fairs and specialized college career mixers, developing and supporting internship opportunities, offering company exposure tours, and creating and sponsoring career fairs and networking events.
UNLV is proud to be an educational partner with the Amazon Career Choice program. This educational benefit empowers Amazon employees to pursue any undergraduate degree at UNLV.
Create A Micro-Internship Program
UNLV has partnered with Parker Dewey to create the UNLV Micro-Internship Program. These are short-term, paid assignments that can be completed by a current student or recent grad with minimal guidance or on-boarding. Micro-internships provide you access to a larger talent pool, assist in attracting top talent, improve new hire retention, and provide your busy hiring managers with some just-in-time support. Unlike a traditional internship, these assignments typically range from 5 to 200 hours total, can often be completed remotely, and can be done in any department in your organization.
More than ever, job searching is moving online, and in today’s marketplace, it’s necessary to have the best tools available. That’s why UNLV partnered with Handshake, one of the leading online employment portals for college to connect you to them. Our students and alumni are prepared to meet the challenges of today’s global and dynamic workplace.
