Our students prefer in-person interactions with employers; however, if your company is unable to visit the campus, please feel free to schedule a virtual event with us.  

Pop-ups, Information Sessions, & Tech Talks

To increase your organization's visibility, our office can arrange and advertise an Employer Pop-up in the lobby of one of the engineering buildings.  Most pop-ups (formerly called information booths) are held for a few hours (mid-morning through mid-afternoon) Monday-Thursday to reach students between classes.   We think of the pop-up as an informal, individual "career fair" whereby an organization can build brand identity in addition to having in-depth conversations with students regarding specific employment opportunities.  You specify the class levels, majors, and types of jobs available, and we'll advertise for you. 

Another option is to host an information session for students.  Most information sessions are held at 5:00 pm Monday-Thursday or at 3:00 pm on Fridays.  We strongly recommend that the presentation portion of the session be limited to 45 minutes with 15 minutes of Q&A.  After the session students will want to ask individual questions and if appropriate, give you a resume.   Just like a pop-up, you specify the class level and majors of the students invited and provide us with a short description of the event. 

To schedule a Pop-up, Information Session, or TechTalk please request your event via Handshake.
