7-COLLEGE COOPERATIVE RECRUITING PROGRAM
The Claremont Colleges are a cluster of autonomous colleges, each of which excels in a particular academic niche. This educational consortium includes Claremont McKenna College, Harvey Mudd College, Pitzer College, Pomona College, Scripps College, Claremont Graduate University and Keck Graduate Institute. CMC is known for its strong economic, international relations and government departments. While each college has its own career center, employers have access to all The Claremont Colleges' students through our joint recruiting program. Over 300 recruiters come to The Claremont Colleges to recruit each year. CMC's Career Services Center hosts over 100 company visits each year, and offers excellent support and facilities for a successful recruiting visit. The Claremont Colleges use an on-line recruiting system, NACElink/Symplicity: CMConnect, for its on-campus recruiting program. Our cooperative 7-College recruiting program gives employers access to over 5,000 undergraduate and 1,000 graduate students with a broad array of majors.
On-campus interviews give recruiters the chance to interview students in our office. You have the option of pre-screening and selecting the students to interview or having an open schedule where students can sign up on a first-come, first-served basis. With the use of CMConnect, we are able to make your interview date hassle-free with on-line resume and schedule access before your visit. You may arrange for interview schedules to recruit students for full-time employment or for internships.
If you are unable to come to CMC's campus to interview, you can choose the "Resume Collect" option in CMConnect. Positions are advertised and qualified students submit their application materials on-line. You can then access and review resumes submitted and schedule interviews at your site or make arrangements to interview on campus.
We offer the opportunity for companies to come and talk about what they do and discuss career options with students Monday through Thursday nights throughout each semester. These are excellent opportunities for employers to meet and get to know our students. CMC arranges the room, provides AV support, and works to publicize the event. Companies can opt to have their event catered at their expense. Information Sessions are generally well attended and are very effective for both students and employers.
All three options, on-campus interviews, resume collects, and information sessions, can be requested through CMConnect by following the instructions below:
1. Log on to CMConnect
2. If you have an existing account with any NACElink participating school, you may use the same user name and password to access CMConnect. If you do not have a NACElink account, click on Register for New Account.
