We are Loyola Ready

Loyola students are driven—not just to succeed, but to know they are achieving their potential. They are determined to make the world better, to be better friends, better neighbors, better global citizens. At Loyola the expectation that you’ll pursue excellence in academics is balanced with the hope that, once the books are closed, you’ll live life with passion. And our students—and generations of graduates—do. Employers often praise Loyola hires for their ability to think critically, lead by example, communicate effectively, and fully embrace the task at hand.

Meet your organization’s needs for high-quality candidates, and get to know the Loyola Greyhounds. Again and again, employers have praised Loyola students and graduates’ professionalism, eagerness, and an ability to adapt to change to the workplace.

Ways to engage with our students and alumni:

Post Jobs and Internships through Handshake

Loyola is a member of the Handshake network of universities, where 120,000+ companies focus their efforts to recruit top college talent. Learn more about the benefits of Loyola’s partnership with Handshake from an employer perspective.

Employer login

For community members looking to post local jobs, please consider exploring Care.com, as Handshake does not have functionality to support family based jobs. 

On-Campus Interviews

Come to campus to interview our students for full-time, part-time, and summer jobs as well as internships. Interviews are generally scheduled between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. and occur in The Career Center during the fall and spring semesters. You can also hold an information session prior to your interview day. You can schedule on-campus interviews through Handshake after posting job and internship opportunities. 

Skype Interviews

If a trip to our campus is not possible, we offer Skype interviews as an alternative. Students can use the computer in our Skype interview room to connect with you online. In addition, this service is available for employers interested in interviewing students who are studying abroad.

Maryland Technology Internship Program (MTIP)

MTIP helps Maryland retain top talent by increasing the number of paid technical internships offered in the state. Funded by the State of Maryland, the program offers financial assistance to technology-based businesses, as well as state and local agencies, to hire more interns. 
Internship funding is now available to technology-based businesses and state and local agencies offering paid internships.  Preference will be given to employers seeking interns to fill technical and creative roles that require science, technology, engineering, and/or math (STEM) skills. If you just hired an intern or are recruiting candidates, be sure to review the program details and apply.
