Post Your Opportunities
St. Olaf College uses Ole Career Central to house job & internship postings. Opportunities are posted on our Ole Career Central site at no cost. Creating an account is easy, and once posted, students and alumni will be able to view your position.
If you need assistance writing a job description, please use our template detailing required items to include. For questions about posting a job or an internship opportunity for St. Olaf students and alumni, please contact Andrea Kubinski or call (507) 786-3268.
St. Olaf College does not offer resume books (a collection of student resumes). Employers must post a position and solicit resumes through their posting.
St. Olaf College abides by the Principles for Professional Conduct for Career Services and Employment Professionals of the National Association of Colleges and Employers. Posting of job or internship opportunities is not an endorsement of any employer or employment opportunity by the College. In addition, St. Olaf College reserves the right, in its sole discretion, not to post positions.
St. Olaf College is an Affirmative Action Equal Opportunity Employer.

Organizations that can anticipate hiring needs in advance find it convenient to come to campus to conduct multiple initial screening interviews. Generally, employers with internship opportunities recruit sophomores and juniors (sometimes seniors), and organizations with full-time career positions interview senior students.
- Fall Recruiting: Call during the summer months for interview dates that run from mid-October through mid-November.
- Spring Recruiting: Call in December or January to set interview dates for interviews that run from the end of February through April.
Through Ole Career Central, employers are able to post positions, view applications, communicate selection decisions directly to students, and view interview schedules. If interested in scheduling an on-campus interview date(s), please contact Kirsten Cahoon at (507) 786-3268. Many employers also host hour-long information sessions on campus in advance of their on-campus recruiting date to provide students with personalized information about their opportunities. Please speak with Kirsten about this option when scheduling your on-campus interview date.
If you are unable to come to campus for interviews, we can also assist you with a formal “resume collection” to heighten the visibility of your posting.
Host A Table In Buntrock Commons
Bring staff, give-aways, literature, and job/internship descriptions to campus. Reserve a table outside of the “high traffic” student cafeteria by calling Andrea Kubinski at (507) 786-3268. Best months are October, November, February, and March.
