Employers

Please note that Career and Student Employment Services will be closed from December 25 until January 5, reopening at 8 a.m.

We are here to consult with you on how to best brand your organization at Western Michigan University. Let us help you connect with students, faculty, staff, and administration in seven WMU colleges in over 240 academic programs, Registered Student Organizations, Multicultural Affairs, Disability Services for Students, and Veterans Affairs. Through a variety of partnerships we can assist you in structuring your recruitment activities at WMU and establishing a presence of your organization in the day-to-day lives of our students.

The first step to recruiting at WMU is to create a new or access an existing BroncoJOBS account and becoming a linked employer. Review the Employer Guide to BroncoJOBS.
