Employers/Community Partners

Welcome! On behalf of the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John's University, we look forward to working with you in the recruiting process as you seek to fill your organization’s needs for interns and full-time employees. XPD - Experience & Professional Development abides by the principles and professional standards of the National Association of Colleges and Employers

Recruiting for Internships and Jobs

If you are interested or have questions about any of the following services/programs, please contact our External Relations team at [email protected].

On-Campus Interview Program

Interviews are held on both campuses with students from both schools utilizing the program. Each year, many organizations interview students for internship and employment opportunities. Fall semester interviewing typically begins in late September and continues until Thanksgiving break. Spring semester recruiting typically runs from early February through mid-April.

Post Internships and Jobs

Employers/Community Partners have an opportunity to connect with College of Saint Benedict and Saint John's University students and alumni via the online career tool Handshake. This tool enables organizations to post internship, full time, part time, summer, or volunteer opportunities.  Qualified CSB/SJU candidates can review and apply to posted opportunities. Organizations also can connect to the XPD calendar, register to participate in the On-Campus Recruiting Program, collect resumes, and contact candidates through this online career tool. For tips on how to use Handshake successfully as an employer/community partner, visit our Handshake 101 page.
