Recruiter’s Toolbox: Office Sponsorship

Filed in Recruiter's Toolbox by on July 14, 2015

Are you looking to increase your visibility with WPI students and alumni above and beyond participating in a career fair? Consider taking your engagement to the next level by sponsoring a career fair or becoming an academic-year sponsor of the CDC Office. Sponsorship is a great way for newly branded companies to build awareness and for long-term employer partners to raise the profile of their business at WPI.

If your company will be on campus for only one recruiting cycle, or would like to try out the sponsorship program before committing to both fairs, consider becoming an Event Sponsor of either the spring or fall career fair. Your company will receive enhanced branding and better table placement at your sponsored fair.

If your company is seeking a higher level of visibility throughout the academic year, as well as increased branding in CDC communications to students, you may want to consider the CDC Office Sponsor program. These sponsors get prominent visibility at both major career fairs and have a lasting brand presence on campus throughout the academic year. The new program is already a great success. Between its first and second year it not only boasted a 100% retention rate but also grew by 15 sponsors. Consider joining the program to make a larger impact on your recruiting efforts as you partner with WPI.

Office Sponsors may choose from three different levels of sponsorship that offer differing benefits, such as special branding and table placement at career fairs, recognition in the main lobby of the CDC, multiple resume books, and many years of visibility on student “WPI Career Fair Volunteer” T-shirts.

We are continuing to refine the CDC Office Sponsor program to ensure that it provides solid value to our partners at every level. For more information about the office sponsorship program, please contact David Ortendahl, Director of Corporate Relations, at
