Recruiting at SHU

From on-campus interviews, to career and internship fairs, to our online job posting system, SHU connects employers to students/alumni for full-time, internship and part-time recruitment.  The Career Development and Placement Center can collaborate on effective, specialized recruitment measures for your organization. Our staff can also partner with our Office of Alumni Relations to extend your search beyond current students and recent alumni.

On-Campus Recruitment Options

Valuable on-campus recruitment activities, such as interview days and panel presentations, can be conveniently scheduled to meet the employer's time frame. Our office promotes these events to appropriate students, engaging the right audience for your needs.

Sacred Heart University is pleased to offer you access to the PioneerLink Online System so that you can reach our students and alumni with jobs and internships. 

If you don’t yet have a PioneerLink account (or are having trouble accessing your account) please contact Rick DelVecchio at delvecchior@sacredheart.edu. If you are requesting a new account, please provide your company name, contact information including email and phone number and company website.

Once we've accepted your request, we will notify you by email.  You will then have direct access and can start your recruiting activity online. The system will allow you to post jobs and/or internships, review and accept applicants, view a calendar of your events, communicate with candidates and keep in touch with us.

If you have any problems using the system, please contact us at delvecchior@sacredheart.edu.

NOTE:

  • If you are interested in posting a position for child-care, elder-care, tutoring or domestic help, please contact Pam Barnum in our Student Life Department 203-371-7846 or send her your flyer via email at BarnumP@sacredheart.edu or fax (203-365-4780).
  • If you are posting an UNPAID internship, please review the U.S. Department of Labor guidelines to ensure that your unpaid opportunity is in compliance with Federal Law prior to posting.
  • If your business is operated in a home office environment, that must be noted in each job or internship posting.
  • Third-party Recruiters that charge fees to students will not be permitted access to career services.
  • On-campus Interviews – a convenient way to connect with SHU talent. We will promote your employment opportunity, forward you selected resumes (based on pre-determined qualifications), contact the students/alumni you choose to meet, and set up all appointments and logistics on the desired date. Students receive automatic email notification of your on-campus presence and can digitally schedule their own appointments (saving your staff time and energy). Such coordination is available for a stand-alone event, at a career fair, or as follow-up to an online job posting.

Important Parking Information for Our Employer Partners


As some of you may know, we are beginning the construction of a new residence hall on campus and a new academic building just across the street. While this new growth is exciting, it also carries some temporary challenges. Until further notice, all visitors parking on campus must be registered in advance to receive a parking permit. If you would like to come visit us on campus, please let us know and we can reserve a space for you. Our public safety staff requires 48 hours’ notice.

If you are coming to campus for on-campus interviews, we will be in touch in advance to arrange for your needs based on the number of recruiters attending. If you are coming on campus for a larger event like a career fair we will have separate arrangements made for those events and will alert you in advance.

Thank you for your continued support of Sacred Heart University and our students, and for your patience during this time of construction. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Rick Delvecchio directly at delvecchior@sacredheart.edu.
