Recruiting SPP Students

Employers interested in advertising internships or full-time employment opportunities have a variety of options to recruit University of Maryland School of Public Policy students and alumni:

Internship and Job Postings

Career Services and Alumni Relations advertises all available positions in our exclusive database UMD Policy Jobs. To post a job or internship, create an account by logging into the site or simply email the pertinent information to C. Bryan Kempton, director, Career Services and Alumni Relations. We also post announcements, flyers, and posters throughout the building and in our student lounge. Finally, if your posting does not receive the ideal number of student applications, let us know so we can spread the word through more direct student or alumni contact.

Scheduling a Campus Visit

Consider conducting an information session and interviews at the UMD School of Public Policy. To schedule your session, email C. Bryan Kempton, director, Career Services and Alumni Relations. To provide enough time to properly market your campus visit and coordinate the best time, let us know at least two weeks prior to your preferred date. 

Career Networking Night

Career Services and Alumni Relations’ premier annual event, Career Networking Night, is a great opportunity to share information about your organization and any current opportunities for our students and alumni.  Held in downtown Washington, D.C. each February, this formal and free event provides networking opportunities for current students, alumni and employers from all sectors. Averaging over 200 attendees each year, Career Networking Night allows you to make meaningful connections with future policy professionals and potential job candidates.  To receive an invitation to Career Networking Night, contact C. Bryan Kempton, director, Career Services and Alumni Relations.

SPP Internship Program
