Attend Information Sessions

Employer information sessions typically involve a 20 to 30 minute presentation followed by Q&A and networking time. They provide an opportunity to learn about an organization, their employment opportunities, and recruiting activities. They also provide an excellent opportunity to meet recruiters and show an interest in possibly working for the organization they are representing. Information sessions are scheduled in the late afternoon and evening to avoid conflicts with classes, and can take place either in person or virtually. These events can occur at any time during the semester, but they occur most frequently during the few weeks around the career fairs. Details regarding upcoming employer information sessions including times and locations can be found in the Events section of CyHire. Engineering Career Services also sends out a weekly email with a list of info sessions that will be taking place during a particular week.
