Employer Events & Activities - Fall 2022
Grand Valley State University's Career Center hosts a variety of in-person and virtual career events throughout the year with the goal of bringing together employers and candidates. Alumni, graduate and undergraduate students are invited to these events to assist in their search for full and part-time jobs, as well as experiential learning opportunities. Employers know that effective recruiting is a year-round process. Successful organizations are the ones that are regularly on-campus, make a long-term commitment, and take the time to understand where their engagement can be most impactful.
Fall 2022 Career & Internship Fair
Tuesday, October 11, 2022
1:00pm - 5:00pm
DeVos Place Convention Center
303 Monroe Ave NW
Grand Rapids, MI 49503
This high-profile event typically attracts over 1,800 students and alumni from all colleges and majors. Meet with candidates from seven area colleges and universities, including Grand Valley State University, Aquinas College, Calvin University, Cornerstone University, Davenport University, Grand Rapids Community College, and Hope College.
10-Minute Resume Reviews with Employer Partners
10-Minute Resume Reviews allow employers to share valuable feedback on their resume materials and provide a professional development opportunity. During the 10-minute virtual appointment, you will review the student's resume, share your feedback, and have the chance to learn more about the student's career interests.
Please note: This is a professional development opportunity for students and a way to continue to build your brand on campus. Due to demand, employers will be limited to one registration per semester.
Employer Tabling on Campus
Tabling in a high-traffic location at either Allendale or the Pew campus (downtown Grand Rapids) is another great way to raise brand awareness and reach students. Reservations must be made at least five business days (10 days recommended) before you plan to be on campus, and no more than 30 days in advance.
On Campus Interviews
Interviews may be conducted on-campus or virtually for the 2022-23 academic year. We encourage you to use Handshake and its scheduling capabilities for either option. Be sure to book your dates early, as this service is very popular. Once your request has been made, we will work to ensure your request is fulfilled and contact you with any additional information.

Internship Training Workshops
A well-run internship program can do wonderful things for your organization! Whether you need a succession plan, innovative ideas and thinking, or are looking to help groom the next generation of talent, an internship program could be just what you need. West Michigan colleges and universities have teamed up to provide you with free training opportunities to help your program succeed.
Host & Promote Your Own Events
At GVSU, we are always willing to work with our employer partners to think outside of the box. Because of our distributed campuses and increasing demands on learner time, we have found that traditional information sessions do not always attract attention. However, we are happy to work with you to develop and promote your own event.
