What is recruitID?

At recruitID, we welcome recruiters from around the world to meet and interview exceptional students and alumni for full-time and internship positions.

After a resume review, each organization pre-selects candidates to interview. We provide facilities and coordinaton over several days while you and your colleagues conduct one-on-one interviews.

Over lunch, your organization has the option to give a short presentation to all the attendees. We also offer a common space for you to network with colleagues or step away from the interview room.

"Hands down the best recruiting experience I have had out of all that I have attended. I appreciated the interview style, the privacy, and viewing resumes and choosing a schedule prior to coming out. I've met some of the strongest, smartest, most creative students I have come face-to-face with this year."
