eRecruiting

eRecruiting is BYU's web-based career placement system that connects you with your ideal job or intern candidate. This site will open your position advertisement to the largest pool of students including students from other technical majors like information systems and information technology. It will also give you access to interns and alumni.

The site allows you to post job descriptions, access student resumes, make interview decisions, add contact information, and view your interview schedule. It provides you with student resumes in an online book format, which permits you to search for specific skills or experiences.

Access the system by going to byu.experience.com. After you have completed and submitted an online form a member of the career placement staff will phone or email you to confirm the services you requested and:

  • Provide you with an eRecruiting username and password.
  • Obtain additional information about the jobs you want posted online.
  • Schedule an information session through the eRecruiting system.
  • Answer questions about the eRecruiting system.

Career Fairs

The University holds general and technical career fairs twice a year-once at the beginning of fall semester and once at the beginning of winter semester. Typically, computer science students are encouraged to attend the technical career fair, although a few may be interested in the general fair. Each fair hosts hundreds of recruiters, including some of the industry's most noted tech companies. Recruiters are given a chance to meet with potential employees, hold company information sessions and luncheons, and conduct on-campus interviews. For more information about the upcoming Engineering and Technology Career Fair, contact Lloyd Hawkins or Jane Cunningham.
