  • Would you like to host a seminar on campus?
    This is a great opportunity to introduce your organization, discuss employment opportunities and highlight recruiting activities to interested students. Typically, info sessions last for 20 to 30 minutes and include a presentation followed by Q&A and networking time. However, organizations can get creative with the approach. Employers have found success with hosting coffee chats, lunch and learns, trivia or game nights, site visits and tours, or even providing gift bags for finals week. If you're interested in hosting a seminar, visit and reserve a Wednesday to present.
