Services for Employers

The Buffalo State College Career Development Center (CDC) welcomes your partnership and supports your recruiting efforts as you reach out to Buffalo State students/alumni. We ask that all employers who wish to promote job and internship opportunities please adhere to the following guidelines to ensure successful hiring. These policies and guidelines have been established for all recruiting activities sponsored by the CDC.

  1. Job/Internship Postings. The Career Development Center posts full-time, part-time, summer or internship opportunities using ORCA (Online Resource for Career Advancement), powered by Purple Briefcase. Simply, create a free ORCA employer account to list your openings and when prompted to “request access,” select Buffalo State College. We highly encourage organizations to post positions themselves for more immediate release to students/alumni. You can also e-mail the job/internship postings. Feel free to use the CDC Position Vacancy Form or Internship Vacancy Form.


  2. Resume Referral Service. The resumes of current Buffalo State students and alumni in more than 80 academic programs may be viewed using the Online Resource for Career Advancement (ORCA).

  3. Recruiting On Campus. Interested in recruiting on campus? Complete the Employer Information Form to get started.

    • Information Table. A highly visible method to gain exposure for your organization is to reserve a table in our Student Union. Call well in advance to be sure to guarantee your date.

    • Group Information Sessions. Another way to gain exposure for your organization is to schedule a group information session. Choose the date you would like to speak with students and we will do the rest.
