Information sessions allow employers a fantastic opportunity to promote their organization through a meet-and-greet/social event or an information-sharing forum. For the latter option, interested candidates expect employers to provide them a general company/organization overview as well as information on opportunities, culture, the work environment, benefits, the interview process and career paths. These information-sharing sessions may be scheduled at any point during the campus recruiting season or in conjunction with an on-campus interview schedule, are hosted by Career Services from 2-4 p.m. on Monday-Thursday and usually last an hour including time for questions.
Employers also have the option of hosting a meet-and-greet social for interested candidates. In addition to information-sharing, employers also have the option to provide refreshments and/or hors d'oeuvres for students. While optional, employers are also encouraged to consider door prizes, give-aways and other ways to differentiate themselves from established competitors and to garner student interest. Employers meeting the below criteria are most successful with information sessions at UT:
- Employers with a highly diverse talent profile across multiple fields and levels of study
- Employers looking to place talent in multiple locations across the nation (UT students come from all 50 states and over 140 countries)
- Employers who plan to leverage their UT alumni community in on-campus engagement
- Employers who have the resources to connect and engage with multiple student organizations to amplify company brand recognition and key messaging
Get started by scheduling an information session through Handshake.
