Build Your Brand on Campus


Employers bring a valuable and unique perspective to student's career exploration and development. We welcome your involvement in career development activities to help you stay connected to CGU students and build your brand on-campus.


Information Sessions- An information session can be an integral part of your overall campus recruiting strategy. Hosting a session allows you to promote your organization and opportunities and meet prospective candidates.


Coffee Chats- Like an information session, a coffee chat is a way for students to meet with company representatives and find out about jobs, internships, and company culture, although in a more informal venue.


Panel Presentations and Career Week- Bring your team and/or industry colleagues to share their professional experiences and career development advice during career themed weeks and industry oriented panels. This is a great opportunity to reach students who are interested in your your industry.

Instructions on how to set up an Employer account


Although marijuana is legal under certain conditions in the state of California, it is not legal under federal law.  The Drug Free Schools and Communities Act 1989 (DFSCA) provides, "as a condition of receiving funds or any form of financial assistance under any Federal program, an institution of Higher Education must certify that it has adopted and implemented a program to prevent the unlawful possession, use, or distribution of illicit drugs or alcohol by students and employees." Further, under the DFSCA, institutions of Higher Education must employ "standards of conduct that clearly prohibit, at a minimum, the unlawful possession, use, or distribution of illicit drugs and alcohol by students and employees on its property or as part of its activities."  If a college fails to comply, it could become ineligible for federal funding, including financial aid programs for students. 


In order to ensure compliance with federal law, the Career Centers of The Claremont Colleges will not support the recruitment of students or alumni by marijuana-related employers.  This includes, but is not limited to, posting internship or work opportunities, hosting company representatives on campus, promoting job shadow placements, and supporting internships for credit or non-credit.
