Junior engineering students are required to participate in a minimum of two PD activities or events each semester and submit the required write ups. It is suggested one be a Networking or Alumni event, and the other selected from the list of approved PD activities.
To ensure that your resume is employer-ready, you are required to have an engineering faculty member sign off on it. It can be your advisor or any instructor in the College. Our goal is to help you be as well prepared as possible when seeking internships and jobs. This requirement should be completed no later than spring break.
Additionally, you are required to log-into Handshake (with your Villanova credentials) and update your profile. You will also need to complete Villanova’s On Campus Recruiting Orientation. It is critical if you are looking to apply for a job or opportunity through the Career Center and takes at most 20 minutes of your time.
If you don’t complete this orientation and you try to apply for an opportunity in Handshake, you may get this response on some positions:
You do not qualify for this job. Make sure that your profile is up to date.
This job requires you to meet additional special criteria set by your career center. Contact them for more information.
That means this position is part of the On Campus Recruiting program at Villanova, and although you probably do qualify for the position based on most criteria listed, you haven’t completed the OCR Orientation. Once you do complete it, you will be able to move forward with the opportunity.
