Recruit at PLU!

Pacific Lutheran University is a unique source of talent with 44 different majors and 54 minors, as well as graduate and professional programs. Our 3,100 students benefit from a liberal arts education that hones their communications, critical thinking, leadership, and teamwork skills, preparing them for successful careers in a variety of fields.

We offer the following recruitment services and resources:

Gain visibility and get to know PLU students at one of our career fairs. Career Connections partners with academic divisions to host discipline-focused career fairs throughout the academic year. These fairs more closely align employers with students who meet their recruiting needs.

The Career Connections Opportunities Board, our online job and internship board, allows employers to post positions for PLU students and alumni for free.

For assistance in posting jobs, please refer to these instructions.

PLU Career Connection’s Employer Policies are available for review here.

Volunteer positions (non-paid) should be posted with the Center for Community Engagement & Service (CCES) here.

For questions regarding posting volunteer positions, please call CCES at (253) 535-7652 or service@plu.edu.

Career Connections will work with you to develop an internship that benefits both students and your organization. Guidance in developing an internship is available here.

We can reserve table space for you to share company information and talk with students inside the Anderson University Center. We offer tabling on weekdays between the hours of 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Please contact Margaret Sauer to schedule a tabling session at sauermf@plu.edu.

Interviewing on-campus is an efficient and productive way to meet with students and alumni. You have the ability to request, promote and manage an on-campus interview event through your Opportunities Board employer account.

There could be an opportunity to host an information session. Once approved, Career Connections will arrange an information session to showcase your organization and speak with students about open positions and your application process. Contact our office to discuss eligibility.

There could be an opportunity to speak with classes. Scheduling class talks depends on faculty availability and class schedules. For questions regarding criteria and eligibility, please contact our office.

Student clubs provide a captive audience to promote your organization and the opportunities available to students*. A full list of student clubs may be viewed here. Contact PLU Career Connections if you would like assistance in identifying a student club in line with your organization.

*Student clubs are not required to sponsor an employer event. Student clubs make the final decision regarding with whom they engage.

Career Connections will arrange an employer site visit. We will work with you to create a program that highlights your organization and will recruit students for participation based on your recruiting needs.

Government agencies, for-profit corporations, small businesses, and non-profit organizations, who are not involved in political or religious activity may be eligible to participate in the State Work Study (SWS) program. Through SWS, the state contributes to the wages of work study student employees, so participating employers benefit from educated, motivated workers at a lower cost. Additional program information is available here.
