Recruiting for the 2021–22 Academic Year
The University of Oregon has announced that all classes and services will be in person for the 2021–22 academic year. The Career Center office reopens September 13, and we can't wait to meet you!
While we are so excited to be back on campus with our students, with the changing public health landscape we have decided to take a conservative approach to fall programming. Our fall industry-focused career fairs will be held virtually on the Handshake platform; other opportunities to engage with students will be a mix of in person and virtual. Winter and spring fairs will be back in person in the Erb Memorial Union (EMU) Ballroom.
We will continue to monitor the changing public health situation and will follow all UO guidelines regarding campus visitors and safety measures.
Your Future Leaders, Today
Why hire a Duck? UO students are smart, creative, and increasingly diverse. They are problem solvers and storytellers. They've got grit and perseverance. They care about their community and are passionate about leaving their world better than they found it. And they want to work for you.
“The UO has many opportunities for students to build their skills outside of the classroom. As an undergrad, I was involved in multiple student organizations and was able to attend workshops by professionals. These opportunities helped me to explore potential career paths and figure out the best fit for my passions and strengths.”
—Boyuan Yang, BS ’18 (accounting), audit and assurance senior at Deloitte
“My time at the UO taught me to prioritize, manage my time, and work smarter, not harder. As a first-generation college student, I had to push my own boundaries and dive into everything with a ‘why not?’ attitude. These skills have helped me to succeed in my career path in recruiting.”
—Pam Flores, BA ’17 (Spanish), talent acquisition recruiter at Nike
