La Salle University’s Career Center hosts two on-campus fairs annually where employers can connect with students and recent grads to identify candidates for full-time openings, internship or co-op opportunities, and/or part-time and summer jobs. Our fairs draw hundreds of students from all academic majors, class levels, and degrees. Registration for all fairs is found in Handshake or you may call 215-951-1075 for more information.
Here’s what a few of our past employer attendees have said:
“As last year, this was a great event. Thanks to La Salle for their opportunity to network and recruit for both internships and full-time positions.”
“Thank you so much for inviting us to attend. This was well organized and I am sure that I will be hiring some of the bright students that attended.”
“La Salle is one of the better career fairs, everyone is so friendly and respectful – a credit to the school.”
“Having attended La Salle’s career fairs as a student and now as an employer, I continue to feel the events are well organized and provide an opportunity to meet potential candidates.”
Our On-Campus Interview (OCI) program invites you to bring your job and/or internship to La Salle’s campus. Every semester, major corporations, companies, social service/non-profit organizations, and government agencies come to La Salle’s Main Campus to interview students seeking full-time employment, internships, and co-ops. The OCR interviews take place in the Career Center office.
Fall semester interviews are conducted from mid-September to mid-November.
Spring semester interviews typically run from mid-February through mid-April.

Employer Tabling allows you to reserve space at a targeted campus location during the day to attract students’ attention on-campus and distribute information regarding your organization. Some location options for tabling are:
- Student Union
- Mingle with students of all grade levels and majors as they eat or grab a cup of coffee from Starbucks.
- Founders’ Hall Atrium
- Founders’ Hall is the newest building on campus and features a Saxbys Coffee Shop, La Salle’s Career Center, and La Salle’s School of Business.
- Hayman Hall Main Hall
- This building is ideal if you’re looking to catch a student studying one of the arts between classes. The Main Hall was recently refurbished to feature new furniture and sitting spaces.
- Holroyd Hall Atrium
- Interested in chatting with one of our science students? This location is likely perfect for you. Holroyd’s Atrium is a cozy spot to chat with students between classes and labs. The atrium also features a small kitchenette if you wish to hold a coffee chat.
Employer coffee chats allow for employers and students to connect informally for 1:1 or small group conversations. Coffee chats are “open” sign-up meetings, which means any student that is interested in learning more about your organization can sign up for a meeting on a first-come, first-served basis. During coffee chats, students reserve a 15 or 20-minute time-slot to meet with your organization’s representative(s). Conversations are informal and allow students to learn more about your organization, receive feedback on their resume, ask about your application process, and practice for interviews. Coffee chats typically take place at on-campus coffee houses for a period of 2-3 hours.
Industry-specific employer and alumni panels are held throughout the academic year to help educate students about career paths and opportunities within industries and organizations. Interactive session allowing for Q & A and closing meet & greet.
Introduce students to both your industry and your specific organization, acquaint them with your organization’s culture, and possibly connect them with recent La Salle hires who are succeeding within your organization. Typically, employers conduct a 30-minute presentation, followed by 15-30 minutes for Q&A.
The Career Center is always looking for new/innovative ways to promote interaction between our employer partners and students. If you have any programming ideas that may be beneficial to your recruitment needs, please feel free to share them with us!
