We encourage you to highlight your organization to Defiance College students. The Office of Career Development will assist you with all the arrangements.

  • Employer Information Sessions/Tables
    Hosting an information session/reception or information table can be an effective component of your overall recruiting strategy. You will have the opportunity to introduce students to your organization, while getting to know their skills and interests. To request an information session or reserve a table please contact Tracy Armey, Assistant Director of Career Development at or 419.783.2366.
  • Mock Interviews
    Mock interviews are conducted through the year as part of capstone or other courses in students’ majors. Recruiting professionals assist our students in polishing their interviewing skills. Professionals are matched with students seeking experiential or full-time employment in your field. Each interview lasts 20-30 minutes and includes a session at the end for recruiter feedback and student questions. If you would like to participate in mock interviews, please contact Tracy Armey, Assistant Director of Career Development at or 419.783.2366.
  • Career-related Presentations, Seminars, and Employer Panels
    Work with a student group, a faculty member or the Career development staff to deliver career-related presentations, workshops or panels. This is an opportunity for experts to share industry knowledge and advice. It is also a great way for you to network with students, faculty and Career Development staff

Third-Party Recruiting Policy

In providing services for third-party recruiters, college policy requires that: 

1.     Third-party recruiters operate in congruence with the university policy of Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action and do not discriminate on the basis of age, race, color, religion, sex, handicap, or national origin.  An employer or agency using the services of Career Development understands that compliance with all related federal and state statutes and regulations is required for initiation or continuance of Career Development.

2.     Third-party recruiters will abide by the Principles for Third-Party Recruiters as described in the NACE Principles for Professional Practice.

3.     All positions listed by third-party recruiters with Career Development be fee paid by the employer.

4.     Third-party recruiters will provide information about their operations and services to Career Development for candidate review. That information may accompany this form, or be forwarded under separate cover.

5.     It will be the responsibility of the candidate to contact the third-party recruiter. Candidate names and/or information concerning candidates will not be released to third-party recruiters unless candidates provide a written release, signed and dated by the candidate, for that specific agency.
