Recruiting

On Campus

The Office of Career and Professional Development will meet your hiring needs year-round. We offer on-campus interviews in Bloomington to maximize the efficiency of your travel and recruiting time. Last year, we conducted a significant portion of on-campus interviews before classes started. Because of the overwhelming success of this practice, we encourage employers to schedule campus visits for prior to the start of the semester. Reserve a date for fall 2013 on-campus interviews online through Symplicity, filling out the On-Campus Recruiting Registration Form or by calling us at 812-855-8433.

Video Conference

If you would like to have access to our high caliber candidates, but will not be able to make it to Bloomington this season, Indiana Law has video interviewing capabilities available for recruiting employers.  Please contact us for details.

Resume Collection

If you do not have immediate plans to conduct on-campus interviews but wish to solicit resumes, fill in the appropriate sections on the On-Campus Recruiting Registration Form for the resume collection service.
