  • Their 60-sec Info-mercial (elevator speech)

Corporate Information Sessions – Reimagined!

Information Sessions are held on campus to help students learn more about companies and their employment opportunities.   These meetings are a great opportunity for our students to learn about recruiting companies and speak with representatives about internships, co-ops, and full-time positions.  However, with so many occurring the night before the career fairs, students are limited in the number they can attend, and companies are also limited in the number of students they can meet.

After listening to feedback from students and employers, Career Services has reimagined the usual informational session into a one stop, informal, open house event where 13 companies are gathered all in one place and all on one night.  The new “Employer Information Expo” is being held on Sunday, February 16, 2014 in Fisher Hall.  Students will be able to visit as many information sessions as they’d like from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. and then enjoy open networking from 7:00 – 8:00 p.m.  This new event will connect more students with more companies and their representatives for a robust evening of recruiting.
