eRecruiting

eRecruiting is a database of full-time jobs and internship postings, as well as contact information for organizations that might interest you.

Step 1.  Get an account.

In order to access eRecruiting, students will need to set up an account through Career Services. Visit Career Services in Parrish 135 to request an account. Alumni should email careerservices@swarthmore.edu to request an account.

Step 2. Log into Career Services eRecruiting.

Step 3.  Create your profile.

The first time you log in to eRecruiting, you will need to create your profile.  The most important information to complete is "Career Preferences" and "Expected Graduation Date." Career Services uses this information to send targeted emails to students about upcoming events and deadlines; so it is important to include as many career industries that are of interest to you.

Step 4.  Begin searching.

After logging in, you can begin searching for opportunities.  Try searching with multiple key words separated with commas.  Use descriptors that might not be obvious.  For example, for clinical use "anxiety", "depression" and "disorder"; for neuroscience try "fMRI"and "ERP"; for social try "stereotype".
