If the recruitment is your goal, we recommend that you establish a relationship with students and cultivate that relationship through consistent engagement.  Partnering with the School of Business is a great way to connect with students.  The first step in creating a partnership with us is to attend one of our upcoming informational meetings that will detail the possibilities for engaging with us, including recruiting. You can learn more about our school, complete a form to be added to our database for engagement updates, and register for a meeting here:https://business.howard.edu/about/engaging-husb

Career Fairs
