Services for Corporate Partners

In an effort to keep our community safe and healthy, all CSPD on-campus employer events including interviews, information tables, classroom presentations, etc. have been cancelled for the remainder of the spring semester.

However, there are still many ways to engage with Fox students virtually:

  • ​Post your active jobs and internships via the Handshake platform
  • Host virtual events via webinars, Zoom, etc. and promote them via Handshake
  • Conduct virtual interviews coordinated through the Fox CSPD Employer Partnerships team

Please contact the Fox CSPD Employer Partnerships team with any questions.  We are ready to support your organization as you adapt recruitment strategies and promote job and internship opportunities during this unprecedented situation.

Note: If you have any Temple University students currently, or soon to be employed by your organization, please be sure to update them on your operating status, guidelines, and start date changes if applicable. We have encouraged students to discuss concerns directly with their intern instructors/advisors (if earning course credit) and supervisors.
