Recruiting Opportunities

Posting Positions to CyHire:

Career Services offers a free, online recruiting system, CyHire, which allows employers to post internship and full-time positions for all Iowa State University students to access. Employers can create an organization profile, schedule interviews, advertise on-campus information sessions, and register for career fairs. All professional positions must be posted on CyHire to recruit at Iowa State University in compliance with Equal Employment Opportunity.

    1. Go to CyHire
    2. Click on “Sign Up and Post Job”
    3. Complete the form and click “Submit”
    4. Once we approve your registration, you will receive a system e-mail with your login information

Position postings are promoted to all ISU students, and any alum that requests access. CyHire makes it easy for job seekers to search for positions. Resumes and other application materials can be collected in CyHire, via email, or directed to your organization’s website.

Interview Scheduling:

CyHire makes it convenient to schedule and arrange in-person and virtual interviews. Students apply to posted positions in CyHire and candidates can be invited to interview. Once invited, selected candidates can choose a time slot in your interview schedule.

Information Sessions:

Virtual and/or in-person information sessions market your organization to students and inform them of your employment opportunities. Name recognition is very important to effective college recruiting. LAS Career Services will promote your information session to students through CyHire and weekly emails.

Offer Acceptance Policy

Liberal Arts and Sciences Career Services encourages employers to give students as much time as possible to evaluate job offers and make informed decisions without undue pressure. Employers should provide candidates a minimum of three weeks from the date of offer to evaluate the opportunity for both internships and full-time positions. We also encourage employers to consider requests for additional time on an individual basis. Offers made to students for positions should be made in writing. Verbal offers should be followed with written offers via email or post.
