Employer Connection

Career Services offers several opportunities for employers to connect with and recruit Aims students and alumni at no charge.

Purple Briefcase is the online job board for Aims students and alumni that allows employers to: 

  • Post and manage part-time, full-time and internship opportunities
  • Create a visual company profile that Aims students can search and view to learn about the company
  • Conduct searches for qualified applicants and view student profiles that outline their work history, academic accolades and extracurricular info
  • If you already have a Purple Briefcase account, email Career Services to receive the Aims Community College employer code

In addition to posting job announcements on Purple Briefcase, employers can email job announcements or flyers for distribution to select faculty and staff to share with students and alumni. Distribution is tailored by industry and degree-programs.

Email your job announcement/flyer to careerservices@aims.edu

By advertising positions to Aims students, employers agree that they have read and understood Aims Career Services Job Disclaimer.

Employers can schedule recruiting tables on any of the four Aims campuses.

Recruiting tables are available Tuesday through Thursday between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. most weeks in the Fall & Spring semesters. 

Recruiting Table Guidelines

We request:

  • Recruiting tables be scheduled at least one week in advance
  • Employers check-in with Career Services or designee upon arrival (sign-in sheets will be provided and should be returned before departure)
  • Employers bring materials that clearly display your organization’s name and recruiting materials such as organizational brochures, business cards, job descriptions, applications, hiring flyers, etc. You are welcome to bring promotional items or giveaways. Recruiters who require electric connections will need to bring an extension cord, along with materials to prevent a tripping hazard
  • Employers refrain from bringing any food items, aside from individually-wrapped candy
  • Employers refrain from aggressive recruitment tactics while on campus

To schedule a recruitment table, call (970) 339-6508 or email careerservices@aims.edu
