How to request an event

Handshake

NMSU Career Services utilizes the Handshake online system, a web-based recruiting system that allows employers to access and manage their recruiting activities from one centralized source. Employers may post jobs, schedule on-campus interviews, request information tables and register for career fairs

Job Postings

Career Services offers FREE job postings for employers. By utilizing the Handshake system, you can post your employment opportunities and monitor the candidate pool. Handshake automatically generates email reminders when students apply for a job or when a posting is about to expire.

Recruiting

NMSU Career Services offers two recruiting seasons during the academic year:

  • Fall (September – November)
  • Spring (February – April)

Employers planning on-campus recruiting activities may develop their schedules by utilizing Handshake. To reserve a recruiting date simply request through Handshake by developing a profile and requesting your recruitment date(s).
