Tips to Maximize your Recruitment Efforts on the UCSC Campus

  1. Maximize your company’s visibility by becoming a partner and developing collaborative relationships with student organizations and faculty with help from the Employee Relations (ER) Team. The ER Team can help you create a branding campaign directed at the campus community as a whole or a particular student/faculty population.
  2. Come to school often to meet with students and faculty. Activities such as Career Fairs, Information Sessions, Tabling in Quarry Plaza, e-mail marketing, and On-campus Interviews, along with one-on-one interactions with faculty are the best ways to build brand trust.
  3. When entering your jobs into SlugQuest, include all appropriate UC Santa Cruz majors to ensure a diverse applicant pool.
  4. The number of primary candidates you select should match the number of interview slots available. Also choose 3-5 alternates per schedule, as all prime candidates may not sign-up.
  5. Communicate regularly with students via email throughout the recruiting process.
    • Send candidates congratulatory emails throughout the recruiting process.
    • Remind them of any particular pre-interview events or interview attire requirements.
    • Contact selected candidates if you notice that they haven’t signed up for an interview time.
    • Keep them apprised of their post-interview status.
  6. Monitor your schedule(s) throughout the process so you can make adjustments if necessary. Contact slugquest@ucsc.edu if you find you need to modify your plan(s).
