SLAC February Video Interview Day: How to Apply and What to Expect

Participating with SLAC gives you access to off-campus job interviews with leading employers around the country!    The Selective Liberal Arts Consortium provides students with off-campus interview opportunities for post-graduate and internship positions with top employers in many different fields. The organizations that interview through SLAC come from all sectors, including for-profit, nonprofit, and government, and opportunities include entry-level jobs and internships in a wide range of areas, such as: Education Advertising Marketing Political organizing Technology Economic research Consulting Public policy Law Medical & scientific research About SLAC Events We offer 4 recruiting events: two Video Interview Days and two city-based Recruiting Days- in Washington, D.C. and New York. These events are ideal for seniors seeking entry-level jobs, or juniors seeking internships. Each event provides interviews with reputable employers, all in one day. For both the city-based events and the video interview days, students review and apply for opportunities through our online recruiting system. Employers then extend invitations to the applicants they wish to interview, and students schedule their interviews online. City-Based Recruiting Days Our Washington, DC Recruiting Day and New York Recruiting Day are both held in January. Candidates selected for interviews arrange their own travel and accommodations. Recruiting Days provide an opportunity to participate in pre-selected face-to-face interviews. Video Interview Days Video Interview Days enable both employers and students to connect without having to travel off-campus or off-site. These events take place in September and February, and interviews are coordinated through each school’s career center using Zoom or other online service.

Shift Into Gear in the New Year (For Your Career!)

Shift Into Gear in the New Year (For Your Career!)

By Jennifer Barr It’s finally 2020 and we hope your break is going well! Many of you have been home for a few weeks now, and we hope you are catching up on sleep, eating healthy and visiting with friends and family. It’s that time of year when many students are trying to figure out practical use of their time before classes begin, and the new year always ushers in a new set of resolutions. One of the smartest ways to utilize January before classes is to spend quality time thinking about next summer, or the next (or initial!) stage of your job search.

Narrowing down your search will help keep things manageable and is an important part of the process. The “I can do any job,...
