All that’s left to do is to get started! back to top On-Campus Recruiting (OCR) The On-Campus Recruitment (OCR) program is an excellent venue for employers to convey career opportunities to students and alumni. Employers may also request to visit classrooms and lecture halls to share company perspectives, labor market trends and profile emerging career options. OCR begins October 1st and ends on April 30th.

Visit www.desu.edu/cooperative-education for more information and to obtain the necessary forms or contact rroberts@desu.edu for questions or feedback. back to top Partnerships/Internships Internships provide students with the chance to gain hands on work experience outside of the classroom.  When that experience aligns with coursework, it allows the student the opportunity to put what they’ve learned in the classroom to practice in real world settings. Many internships provide mentoring and professional development opportunities, and can be used by employers to create a pool of applicants for future hire.   If your organization is looking to establish a partnership to hire students from Delaware State University, please contact our office at (302) 857-6120 or email us at careerplanning@desu.edu.  back to top Professional Network The Professional Network is an excellent tool for employers to connect to DSU students and alumni. The network provides an exclusive, school branded database of professionals, alumni, and mentors, which includes comprehensive search tools and network member confidentiality controls. Through the network, employers can serve as volunteer career advisors allowing DSU students and alumni to reach out and contact you regarding their career aspirations, your industry, and your employment expertise and experience. You decide how many students you want to interact with and how that interaction will take place (phone, email, or mail).  You also have the option of expressing interest to participate on the DSU Career Services Advisory Board, panels, presentations, resume critiques, and mock interviews. Those interested can sign up through your existing login in NACElink. If you are not an existing NACElink user, simply create a new user name and password at https://desu-csm.symplicity.com/employers/. Please contact the Career Services team at careerplanning@desu.edu or call (302) 857-6120 for assistance. And as always, employers may also use NACElink to review resumes, post job openings and showcase their business to current DSU students and alumni. back to top   Career Fairs Career Fairs are held in October for fall semester and in March for the spring semester. The fairs are designed for employers to share internship and permanent employment opportunities within their organizations with DSU collegians and alumni. This interaction enables the employer to not only find suitable candidates for current openings, but also helps students at every grade level prepare themselves to be marketable, exceed employer expectations and to efficiently transition from the classroom to the formal occupational setting. Employers can make requests through Career Services to coordinate times in the classrooms where they present their company and industry highlights to the student body and faculty. 2014 Spring Career Fair Information Delaware State University cordially invites your organization to take part in our 2014 Spring Career Fair scheduled on Tuesday, March 4, 2014 from 10:30am - 3:00pm.

Cooperative Education

Body: 
Cooperative Education is a program in which students combine formal academic study with periods of practical work experience in business, industry, government or service organizations. It offers students with defined career objectives the forum to develop expertise and sharpen skill-sets in their field of study.

For employers, it produces an opportunity to observe prospective future employees and influence the direction of higher education. Students who have satisfactorily completed 45 credits may participate in the program. Those who complete the program with a passing grade will be awarded academic credit from the University. All work assignments must have prior approval from the chairperson of the student's academic department and the Cooperative Education official.
