Strategize with Us

The Career Development Center (CDC) can help you create short and long-term hiring strategies that will create a positive impression of your company with WPI students.

Ideas for Attracting WPI Students

  • Early Identification – Hiring interns or co-ops is a fantastic way to train and identify talent early. The National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) says that interns are nearly 60% likely to convert to a full-time employee from a previous experience.
  • Campus Branding – Volunteer for educational programs, participate in panel discussions, share free pizza or cookouts with students during company information sessions, and be active in career fairs. The WPI CDC can work with you to create a plan and a schedule that matches your resource allocation abilities with current activity on campus.
  • Recruiting Top Talent – Find the best-fit talent for your organization including Bachelors, Masters, and PhD students from New England to around the globe. By getting involved with WPI, you can hire students with teamwork skills and experience with corporate-sponsored research and design projects. You will find that WPI talent also has a natural tendency to work quickly and resourcefully to accomplish your team’s goals.
  • Sponsorship – Capture the attention of faculty, staff, and students by becoming a Career Development Center sponsor. We offer various levels and benefit packages for your organization to gain branding value and access to a number of stakeholders at WPI. Learn more about sponsor benefits by contacting David Ortendahl, dbo@wpi.edu.
