Career Connect Employer Guide

Account Creation

An account may have already been created for our employer partners. To check if an account exists, select Forgot Password and enter a username (email address) to receive a reset password link.

If an employer partner does not have an account set up, select Sign Up to create a profile and begin posting jobs. 

Creating Your Profile

Update your personal information by accessing your profile on the upper right-hand corner. The employer profile on the left-hand side will update the overall company profile. If changes are made here, it will impact the employer profile for all associated contacts.

Post a Job

To post a new position, select Jobs on the left navigation and find the Job Postings option. Within the new job menu page, employers can begin the process by selecting Post a Job. Employers are able to copy a previously posted position or complete the form to add a new posting. Once a job posting is submitted, it will be reviewed by our office for approval. Job posting statuses can be viewed by returning to the Job Postings menu.

Reviewing Applicants

Job applicants can be reviewed through the Job Postings menu. Select the Applicant number to review and take action. This can also be done through the Student Resumes tab within the Jobs menu. Employers can select on the student's name to email them, review documents, or complete batch options on multiple students. 

Interview Scheduling

Access interview schedules through the OCR (on-campus recruitment) tab on the left-hand navigation or the quick access links on the right-hand side. Request interview schedules, review positions and applicants, as well as access interviews through the OCR tab. 


Information Sessions

Under the Events tab on the left-hand navigation, employers can request to hold a virtual information session with RIT students. Select Request Information Session and fill in the proper event field for our office to review and approve. 

Registering for Fairs

Access career fairs you have been invited to directly from the invitation email or refer to the left-hand navigation bar to search for upcoming fairs.

Click on the RIT career fair your company is interested in attending and you will be directed to the fair’s details page. Review all the information regarding the fair, the main point of contact for questions, and find the registration button on the top right corner.

You will be directed to a registration form that will cover the number of representatives, booths, and payment plans. Our Career Services Coordinators will work with you through the registration process to ensure your company is a good fit for the fair.
