Employer Relations Manager
5736 S. Woodlawn Avenue, Room 102
De'Neatria Robinson is the Employer Relations Manager for MAPSS, CIR, and Computational Social Science. For 6+ years her career mission has been to connect students to professional opportunities. Earning a BA in Communication from Purdue University and M.Ed in Higher Education from Loyola University Chicago, she focuses on creating intentional employment opportunities alongside UChicago faculty and staff partners for students.
DeNeatria’s journey to career services started as an undergraduate in the Center for Career Opportunities at Purdue University. Noticing a lack of student development in campus recruitment strategies, she utilized her graduate education to create new best practices as a campus recruiter in business.
She later returned to career services at the University of California- Riverside, where she facilitated career development programs; lead professional development workshops; and acted as a consultant for employers looking to develop a customized recruitment strategy. This dedication to career services led her to serve on the board of directors for the California Internship and Work Experience Association.
Her experience contributing to inclusion and diversity initiatives, (ex: employer resources group engagement; member of the Associate Vice Chancellor Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Advisory Committee; founder of UCR Black Womxn’s affinity group; and specialized identity programming) has informed her interest in combining identity development and career development.
