Connect with Employers

Start with your CAP Liaison

One of the best ways to connect with employers is to work with the Career & Academic Planning liaison to your department. Liaisons are in touch with employers who recruit at JMU and aware of trends in hiring for a variety of fields.

Find Employers Involved at JMU

Faculty can access Recruit-A-Duke to see what jobs and internships are available to students, view employer information, and see which employers are attending Career Fairs and other career related events. For the username and password to a generic account that can be used to access Recruit-A-Duke, contact us at

You may also want to view the Recruit-A-Duke tutorial to gain a better understanding of what On-Campus Recruiting is all about. We encourage you to promote Recruit-A-Duke to your students and make them aware of this resource.

Attend Employer Lunches

Career & Academic Planning hosts lunches with employers who are recruiting on campus throughout the academic year. We invite you to participate in these employer lunches.  The purpose of the lunches is to connect faculty with employers who come to campus to conduct interviews with our students for full time and internship positions. A wide variety of majors are represented each semester.  Employers target specific majors and appreciate meeting with faculty members who teach in those departments.

At the beginning of each semester, the Employer Lunch Schedule is posted on our Google Drive account. Please contact us at for the link to sign up for a time if you are interested in participating. We will follow up with you afterwards with additional information.

Laws and Ethics of Student Hiring

As faculty invested in the success of our students, it is important for us to understand the legal and ethical issues surrounding student employment. The National Association of College Educators (NACE) has created a set of ethical standards for guiding the job-search process: A Faculty Guide to Ethical and Legal Standards in Student Hiring.
