Have a job opening and need to get the word out? We offer multiple places to post your announcement, including:
The DigiPen Career Fair is our longest running recruiting event and hosts over 100 nationwide industry employers on campus. Unlike traditional job fairs where employers sit and wait to be approached by prospective employees, this event provides an opportunity for graduating DigiPen students to display their projects, portfolios, and reels directly to industry professionals. Many of our alumni have landed their first industry jobs through connections they made at this event.
This year’s fair will be a two-day virtual event, with students in technology- and design-focused disciplines attending the first day and students in the creative/art disciplines attending the next day. DigiPen seniors, graduating master’s degree students, and recent graduates will be in attendance and ready for full-time employment opportunities. We hope you’ll join us for this great recruitment opportunity to connect with students who are very interested in your company.
We will be hosting the Career Fair on Handshake where you will be able to meet with students in 1:1 sessions via video or audio calls.
For more information about the DigiPen Career Fair, please contact any member of the Career Services team at careerservices[at]digipen[dot]edu.
2022 Virtual Career Fair
The Internship Fair is a fantastic opportunity to connect with a diverse group of students seeking both internships and full-time positions from the convenience of your home office. We’ll be holding the Internship Fair virtually via the Handshake platform. By registering, you will have access to both 1:1 meetings and group sessions with our talented students. Please reach out to careerservices[at]digipen[dot]edu if you have any questions.
Each week, we invite companies to campus to interact with DigiPen students in a number of ways. Participating companies have sent programmers, artists, designers, producers, HR representatives, university relations representatives, or a group of employees (the more diverse, the better!) to talk about their work and their companies. Companies can use their time to recruit, build brand awareness, or both!
Presentations can include an informational/historic rundown of the company, the role of each presenter at the company, a trailer or demo of the company’s product(s), information about how the company hires interns and entry-level employees, and compelling reasons why students would want to work there. Presentation styles vary from company to company.
If you are interested in a Company Day time slot, contact careerservices[at]digipen[dot]edu.
Student Hiring Timelines
Due to our semester-based schedule, current students seeking internships usually look for position start dates at the beginning of September, the beginning of January, or the beginning of May.
Graduating students are usually eligible for full-time employment the first week in May, with smaller batches of students graduating in December and July. These students often start looking for full-time work several months before graduating, both at on-campus recruiting events and through industry conferences like GDC.
Recruiting Policies for Employers
We abide by the Principles for Ethical Professional Practice outlined by the National Association of Colleges and Employers. These principles outline what we expect of employers when they interact with and recruit DigiPen students. For more, please see a full list of our Recruiting Policies.
