Companies who are most successful in recruiting at UCSB are constantly working to build a consistent presence on campus. Companies want Gauchos to know who they are and that they are "the company of choice." Building this awareness on campus takes effort and creativity on the part of the recruiter and often times recruiters are stretched thin.
Contact our Employer Services Team to assist you with a branding solution.
