The University of Notre Dame (ND.jobs) is accepting applications for a Admissions Recruiter, ESTEEM Graduate Program.
Applications will be accepted until 8/27/2019.
The ESTEEM Graduate Program is hiring an Admission Recruiter. This position will report directly to the Assistant Director of Curriculum, Recruiting and Marketing for the ESTEEM Graduate Program. The Admissions Recruiter's primary responsibility is recruiting top-quality STEM students and young professionals to join the ESTEEM Graduate Program. This involves all aspects of the recruiting cycle, starting from helping prospective students find out about ESTEEM, educating them about the experiences they will have during the program (e.g. capstone project work, mentorship opportunities with entrepreneurs, visits to local startups, funding for their ventures) and placement possibilities post-graduation, helping them through the application process, and finally working through the confirmation process once an offer is made. The ESTEEM Graduate Program is an 11-month Master of Science degree program at the University of Notre Dame that equips students from technical backgrounds in STEM with the skills and experience of entrepreneurship so that they can launch new businesses, become innovators within large corporations, and be leaders of dynamic, innovative teams. Over the course of a year, students are immersed in an entrepreneurial sandbox, where they get their hands dirty with entrepreneurship and innovation through a cutting-edge curriculum, a capstone project on the commercialization of an emerging technology, and outstanding out-of-the-classroom experiences. ESTEEM emphasizes the action of entrepreneurship, not just the study of it. ESTEEM students leverage their diverse academic, geographic, cultural and socio-economic backgrounds to Fix Things That Matter in healthcare, technology, biotech, manufacturing, renewable energy, and more in the context of a community of fellow STEM entrepreneurs. By the time they graduate, due to the rigorous academic experience, exposure to real-life business ventures, and exceptional mentorship, ESTEEM students find their technical skills impactful and marketable in a rapidly changing economy. Students start impact-focused businesses based on their innovations or launch into career tracks outside of narrow technical roles, taking positions of leadership at the intersection of business and innovation. The ESTEEM Graduate Program is part of the IDEA Center at Notre Dame. Standing for Innovation, De-Risking and Enterprise Acceleration, the IDEA Center is the fundamental resource for all commercialization and entrepreneurial activities at the University of Notre Dame. It provides the necessary space, services and expertise for idea development, commercialization, business formation, prototyping, entrepreneurial education and student entrepreneurial efforts. It is designed to bring the best Notre Dame faculty, staff and student ideas and innovations to market. For our ESTEEM students, proximity to the IDEA Center has created opportunities for funding their ventures (weekly pitch sessions for grants of up to $2,500, access to the $23 million Pit Road Fund), the ability to work side by side with innovators and entrepreneurs through internships, and connections to a global network of founders, innovators and funders through a strong relationship with Notre Dame's Development team.
