Building Your Brand On Campus

Please note – all classes at UW in Summer 2020 will be conducted virtually. As a result, some visibility-building and recruitment best practices have temporarily changed. For information on virtual recruitment options available to you this Summer, please click here.


Building your presence on the UW campus has a significant impact on your recruitment success. We encourage all employers to participate in an array of activities designed specifically to help you increase your visibility and on-campus brand.

Here are just a few of those activities we recommend:*
