Talent and Recruitment

Our diverse student body made up of nearly 1,300 undergraduate and 1,200 graduate students are leading the way and making a difference. McKelvey Engineers are well-rounded problem solvers, innovative thinkers, multi-disciplinary collaborators and effective communicators. Among our 21K+ alumni are numerous CEOs and C-suite executives, entrepreneurs and world-renowned faculty, researchers and physicians.

Connecting with our students early and building your company's name recognition will be key to hiring top WashU talent.

Internships & Co-ops

Whether your organization is a local startup or a global Fortune 500 company, our students are eager to apply theories learned in the classroom to real-world problems. They are curious to learn about new companies, explore unfamiliar career paths and make an impact.

Through an intern or co-op, your company can build a pipeline for entry-level talent, bring in new perspectives and innovative ways of thinking, and tackle important projects.

Tech Talks & Company Presentations

Connect with students in a more relaxed and intimate setting to share information about your company, highlight potential career paths and opportunities or offer expertise on a particular subject. Couple it with information about a particular industry and encourage student interaction. These things along with timing and promotion are important to maximize student attendance.

Site Visits & Tours

What better way to get students excited about your company and the work you do than to see it first-hand? Whether you'd like to target a certain subset of students or partner with a student organization, we can discuss if a visit to your facility is feasible.

Other ideas? We'd love to hear them! In collaboration with our partners in the WashU Center for Career Engagement, we can work with you to come up with a tailored strategy that's ideal for your organization.
