What is an Info Session?
Info Sessions with employers on campus are scheduled for evenings and lunchtimes throughout the semester. They are very important networking tools as they allow employers to add a face and personality to the resume and cover letter that you submit for an interview. Your first impression with a company is often the Info Session, so dress professionally and consider all interactions as part of a preliminary interview process.
Why should I attend?
Employers take notes:
- Who attended.
- Who no-showed (without notice).
- Who asked questions.
- Who introduced themselves.
- Who actively participated.
- Who didn't actively participate.
Attendance is not mandatory, but if you are going to submit an application to a company, you need to make every effort to attend and participate in an Info Session while they are on campus. If you know there is a conflict in advance, don’t sign up for the event, but reach out to the contact to see how to get the information outside of the Info Session.
How do I register for an Info Session?
You can register for all on-campus recruitment events on Handshake.
What if I register but then cannot make the info session?
If you do register for an info session and have an issue at the last minute, un-invite yourself on Handshake, reach out to Career Services and the company contact to let them know.
