SLAC

The Selective Liberal Arts Consortium Recruiting Days (SLAC) program provides students with virtual recruiting events and a city-based recruiting event in Washington, D.C. over winter break. Organized through SLAC, interviewing through recruiting days will put you in direct contact with employers in fields such as education, advertising, marketing, political organizing, technology, economic research, consulting, public policy, law, government, and medical and scientific research. Many of the companies involved in SLAC are only recruiting through this program.  

Please visit the SLAC website for more information about the specific employers and the jobs available. Students will need to use a unique recruiting portal to sign up for these programs as well. Login information and instructions are found on the front page.  

There are three remaining programs for this school year.

Friday, Nov. 7 - Video Recruiting Day

This event will be a chance for Davidson students to connect with employers without leaving campus. Students selected for interviews will conduct them through video conferencing with the employer from a space of their choosing. There are many companies and organizations signed up, and students are encouraged to apply to several if interested.
The application deadline for this event is Wednesday, Oct. 15.  

Friday, Jan. 9 - Washington, D.C. Recruiting Day

This event brings students and employers face-to-face for a day of interviews in Washington, D.C. Students interested in attending should look for the companies involved and apply to as many as they like. Students may be selected for multiple interviews, and may also be able to pick up additional interviews onsite at the program. Last year one student picked up four additional first-round interviews while attending the day.
The application deadline for this program is Tuesday, Nov. 11.

Students will be notified several days later if accepted to interview and need to sign up for interviews beginning on Friday, Dec. 5.  Students accepted to interview at this event may request funding (up to $400) to help pay for their travel and lodging expenses related to attending SLAC.  Students accepted for interviews will receive an invitation to apply for funding at that point through the Center for Career Development.  

Friday, Feb. 20 - Video Recruiting Day

This event will be the final chance for Davidson students to connect with employers without leaving campus. Students selected for interviews will conduct them through video conferencing with the employer from a space of their choosing. Look for information closer to the event about employers involved.
The application deadline for this event is Wednesday, Jan. 28, 2015.
