Career Center


Top Employers

Over the last year, the Career Center has continued to have increases in employer recruiting activity. Full-time Career Center staff are dedicated to traveling to employer sites both locally and regionally to connect employers with students. In addition, we host events that connect students with hundreds of employers.

How to Qualify as a Top Employer

The Career Center collects data from both employers and students to determine employment outcomes and to designate top employers. Therefore, in addition to completing your employer survey, you may also want to encourage any hired students or alumni to log their information as well.

Employer Data Collection

  • Complete the Employer Hiring Survey for each student who accepted your offer.
  • For a large number of surveys due to multiple hires, please use an Excel template. Send your request for the template to Barbie Smrekar at smrekar@mailbox.sc.edu. Once the template is complete, you can email it back to Barbie at the same email address.

Student Data Collection

  • Students are surveyed through the Annual Graduation Survey.
  • Co-op and internship students are asked to log into their Handshake account and report their internship under "Experiences."
