California Polytechnic State University’s Construction Management department has an excellent reputation. This reputation, boosted by a 100% placement rate, attracts an abundant number of recruiters, a number that continues to grow every year. With the large number of recruiters coming to campus, students often find themselves in the fortunate situation of having multiple offers and having the opportunity to select amongst various companies. To be competitive, employers would best serve to cater their recruitment process to suit the needs of the students they are trying to hire. While plenty of research has been conducted to investigate and determine how recruiters choose students to interview or hire, the way students make decisions about the sort of company they might want to work for has received modest attention. Included in this study is data that reveals Construction Management student’s main determinants for potential employment. An analysis was conducted by placing students in two groups, those looking for full-time employment and those looking for internship positions. The study revealed that students are influenced by many factors, namely company culture, salary, perks, and raises.
