Selective Liberal Arts Consortium (SLAC)

Selective Liberal Arts Consortium database

Colorado College has partnered with the Selective Liberal Arts Consortium (SLAC) to participate in a number of recruiting and interviewing activities off-campus.

SLAC 2014-15 Events

We offer four recruiting events: Two city-based Recruiting Days in New York, NY and Washington, D.C., and two Video Interview Days. These events are ideal for seniors seeking entry-level jobs, or  juniors seeking internships. Each event provides face-to-face interviews with reputable employers, all in one day.

For both the city-based events and the video interviews, students review and apply for opportunities through our online recruiting system. Employers then extend invitations to the applicants they wish to interview, and students schedule their interviews online.

Fields include, but are not limited to, publishing, law, science, education, government, non-profit, business, and finance. If selected by an organization to interview, candidates MUST be prepared to interview in that city.

Review the How to Apply for SLAC page for specific information. Student Application period opens August 1, 2014. 

Fall and Winter Recruiting Days: The Fall Recruiting Day takes place in New York, NY in September, and the Winter Recruiting Day is held in Washington, D.C. in January. Candidates selected for interviews arrange their own travel and accommodations. Each Recruiting Day starts with a morning Career Fair, which allows students an additional opportunity to chat with employers, ask questions about their organization, and generate new contacts.  The afternoon transitions to pre-selected face-to-face interviews.
