Recruit Our Students

The Simmons Career Education Center (CEC) provides several different recruiting options to allow you to connect with Simmons students and alumnx.

Recruiting at Simmons

Posting Jobs, Internships & Events - Handshake

Handshake is the Simmons online job board, allowing employers to share internships, full-time, career events, and other off-campus work opportunities with the entire Simmons community of students and alumnx. Employers receive applications directly from candidates, can send follow up messages, and update application statuses as the search progresses.

  • There is no cost for employers to post jobs for Simmons students and alumnx on Handshake
  • Visit Handshake and enter in your email address and desired password, then click Sign Up
  • Follow the prompts to set up your profile
  • Attend virtual Career Fairs, Information Sessions, and Events

Seeking part-time employees?

We appreciate your interest in hiring students from Simmons University. Please complete this form for part-time employment opportunities off-campus. Our office will use the provided information to add your company, along with any available positions and company contact information, to our virtual map.

Please contact the Career Education Center at [email protected] with any questions.

Please note that we do not post job listings from private families or unregistered individuals. Employers must have a business or non-profit license to submit an employer or job approval request to Simmons University. Due to the fact that the university's liability insurance does not cover off-campus employment, Simmons University is unable to work with private individuals or families who wish to submit an employer or job approval request.

Recommended Recruiting Cycle

To successfully recruit students, we have created a suggested recruiting cycle for you to connect with emerging talent every year.

Fall Recruit: Sept/Oct for Dec Graduates
Spring Recruit: Jan/Feb for May Graduates
Summer Recruit: March/April for Seasonal/Part-time Positions

Become a Partner

We are happy to work with you to offer both in-person and virtual recruitment opportunities. Please email the Career Education Center at [email protected]. Thanks for your time in advance, and we look forward to connecting!
