On a Friday evening, you meet with the selected team members, on the Athens campus, and present them with a leadership case study to complete in 24 hours. Students collaborate as a team, develop solutions and proposals in response to the case study, and present their ideas on Saturday evening.

Deepen your professional relationship with select students by hosting them at your organization. Students apply to visit your organization and you handpick the candidates you want to bring on site. Start planning a site visit with the CLDC Employer Relations team today!


Recruit at Career events

Career Events Engage with CLDC events to build your reputation among students, faculty, and staff. Employers with the greatest recruiting success invest time and energy into building relationships on campus. One of the most efficient ways to make connections is through participation in the numerous events planned and hosted by the CLDC.

Events are held through fall and spring semesters, and range from university-wide career fairs to industry specific events. These events draw students and alumni seeking a variety of opportunities both locally, nationally, and internationally. Review this year’s calendar of events, and reach out to the CLDC Employer Relations team to learn about getting involved.
