Recruiting for the 2020–21 Academic Year

The University of Oregon will be providing remote instruction for fall term 2020, and campus is closed to the general public. The University Career Center has transitioned to remote services, and all large recruiting events, including our career fairs, will take place virtually for the entire academic year. We will update this page with information about opportunities in 2021 for employer campus visits, such as tabling or information sessions, when we have more information, following university guidelines.

Even though we may have gone remote, our team is here to support you! We are available to consult on maximizing your digital engagement and recruitment strategy. Contact the Employer Engagement Team to learn more.


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

What Employers Say About Hiring Ducks

 

“UO students are engaged and active. I’m consistently impressed with how prepared the candidates are to enter the workforce. Ten out of ten, I would recommend!”

Marnie Petek, E&J Gallo Winery

“UO students have a strong interest in service opportunities. They want to make a difference and have an impact. I'm impressed by the variety of things outside the classroom students are involved in, and how they connect and translate those experiences to opportunities they seek. They also have a wide-eyed curiosity and an openness to exploring, which I especially appreciate.”

Marcus Ramirez, City Year
