Employer Resources

Suffolk University educates students to become engaged and innovative professionals and forward-thinking leaders, prepared to succeed in the global community.

Suffolk students combine diverse backgrounds with rich experiential learning opportunities as they live and learn in the heart of Boston. They choose from over 60 degree programs offered in the College of Arts and Sciences and the Sawyer Business School.

The Career Development Center offers employers a variety of ways to connect with students, outlined below. The Employer Relations Team provides a tailored recruitment experience for employers to connect with motivated Suffolk students. Learn about some of these students and why you should partner with Suffolk for your employment needs. Contact us with any questions you may have.

Recruit Suffolk Students

Suffolk University’s Career Development Center (CDC) uses a career management tool called Handshake – a modern platform for college recruiting. Handshake allows employers to post jobs or internships, request on-campus interviews, register and post events, and network with Suffolk students and alumni.

Create an account and login to Handshake, and review the Handshake for Employers page for support.

When posting jobs and internships, please be aware of the University’s Employer Recruiting Policies.

Employers can interview Suffolk students for job or internship positions conveniently on Suffolk’s downtown campus. To reserve an on-campus interview date, please contact Laura Marchant.

One of the best ways to interact with Suffolk students is to attend one of the many events held on campus each year.

The annual Job and Internship Fair held every March draws over 350 students from all disciplines who are prepared to meet and engage with employers. To learn more about the fair or register, please contact Laura Marchant or Joanna Lazarek.

The CDC hosts additional career events throughout the year including various industry-specific career panels and expos, Mock Interview Day, and more. If interested in participating in an event on campus, please contact us.

Employers can host an information session on campus, or table in one of the University’s busy academic buildings to better engage students. To reserve a date, please contact us.

Job shadowing allows employers to provide Suffolk students with an inside look at their organization and career paths within it. When employers invite a promising, highly motivated student into the workplace, they are strengthening the pool of talent in their respective industry. Today's job shadowing students may become tomorrow's new hires. Job shadowing takes place in March, and can vary from a half-day to a full day depending on employer availability.

If interested in hosting a student in the Job Shadowing Program, contact Lauren Gray.

Alumni interested in hiring fellow Rams and stay involved with the Suffolk community should contact the Associate Director of Internships and Alumni Engagement, Joanna Lazarek. The Career Development Center can work directly with alumni to fulfill recruiting needs and offers additional ways to connect with Suffolk students, notably the Ram Alumni Mentoring Program (RAMP).
