Oregon State University




Get Started Recruiting at OSU...

At Oregon State University we breed the best and the brightest.  Our students are energetic, motivated and innovative.  They are forward thinking, highly trained and possess a high work ethic.  These are comments I’ve received directly from recruiters and employers, just like you, who continually return to hire more Beavers because of their previous success with recruiting at OSU.

We understand that our students are your future employees and leaders in your industry.  That is why we train our students for lifelong career development, not just their degrees.  They are groomed for success and provided with well rounded training not just in their academics but in their career goals and personal goals as well.  We appreciate your willingness to also invest in our students and their future. 


Why Oregon State Students?

A Sustainable Investment

Perhaps one of the most notable qualities of our students is their awareness of the need for a more environmentally sensitive, socially equitable, and economically stable culture.  This awareness not only positively impacts our campus, but as Oregon’s largest public research university, our students are forming our future in Oregon and beyond with their sustainability practices.  In fact, OSU ranks fourth among universities nationwide for using renewable energy and first in the Pac-10 Conference.  So what does this mean for you, the employer?  This means that OSU students engage their communities with actions that make a difference.  You can feel confident that when hiring an OSU student or alumni sustainability will be at the forefront of their mind – which means you as the employer will also be helping to create a sustainable future for your company.

Diverse Population

Oregon State welcomes a diverse student body of nearly 25,000 students from across Oregon, all 50 states and more than 100 countries.  Our students will enhance your workplace by adding diversity from a wide range of backgrounds.  Our high achieving students are also seeking out a diverse population of employers and industries.  We look forward to connecting you with our students whether that’s through meeting with one of our 300+ student organizations on campus, or getting involved with our campus events such as speed mock interviews.  We are here to help you access one of the largest and most diverse pools of professional talent.


What are your organizations needs?  General exposure on campus, involvement in events, finding a diverse population of students, help filling time-sensitive job openings?  Whatever your specific needs are we are here to help.  Our goal is to work with you to implement customized recruiting strategies specific to your organization.  Whether that’s through our annual career fairs, Beaver Careers (our free online career management system), our Orange Circle Sponsorship program, or engaging students with outreach programs on campus we are here to help facilitate that connection. 

Again, you’ve come to the right place and we’re happy you’re here.  We look forward to working together to create a successful partnership.  We value our relationship with you and appreciate your interest in our incredible students.
