Career Development

Networking and Recruitment

Getting ahead

Through our annual career fairs, hundreds of campus visits and thousands of employer contacts, we help our students get in the door.

It’s what you know and who you know

Having strong business knowledge and skills is the price of entry, but it doesn't guarantee access. To get the right job, you'll need the right partner to introduce you to the right people.

At Quinnipiac, we continually work hard to develop relationships with the best companies — from local hospitals to multinational corporations — to create opportunities to get you introduced.

  • 3 annual career fairs 
  • 350 different employer campus visits
  • More than 7,000 employer contacts available through the school
  • Networking career days in New York City and beyond
  • Business alumni and industry leader networking days, where students learn about career paths and participate in panel discussions
“Even as a first-year student, it is important to attend the career fairs just to gain the experience and skills necessary to make a lasting impression when it really counts. Also, you never know what will happen.”

Internships

Internships build more than resumes

Preparing to navigate the complexities of a modern, globalized business landscape requires stepping outside the classroom and exploring professional environments. As part of our business programs, we will encourage you to complete at least one internship that helps reinforce your academic learning.

In Their Words

Preparing for the Future

Christopher Roberts, an accounting major in his final year of the 3+1 BS/MBA program at Quinnipiac, speaks with Michael Taylor, assistant dean of academic services in the School of Business.

Ernst & Young — and Roberts

Christopher Roberts ’16, MBA ’17, learned how easy it is to go global while part of our 3+1 program, where he earned his bachelor’s degree in accounting last year and is now working toward completing his MBA.

“I worked at Ernst & Young last summer in its Manhattan and London offices. I was given a very unique opportunity to spend a month of my internship working in London and living in a fully serviced apartment in the center of the city. I've never had an experience quite like that but it has made me want to travel the world more than ever now,” he said.

Christopher impressed the company so much that he was offered a full-time position in the New York City office a year before completing his MBA.
