  • Use group sessions to educate students about your organization, its values, internship and job opportunities, your recruiting cycle and more.
  • Group sessions are open to any interested student.
  • A maximum of 50 students can attend each session.
  • Students may sign up to attend in advance or drop in the day of the fair.
  • Watch a 5-minute video demonstration.

Individual (1:1) Sessions:

  • Students who meet the employer preferences and/or qualifications will be able to sign up for 10-minute individual (1:1) sessions with recruiters from your organization.
  • Use these sessions as an initial screening interview to determine which students you’d like to contact after the fair for follow-up interviews.
  • Students can sign up for timeslots in advance, but also can take remaining available slots the day of the fair.
  • Watch a 10-minute video demonstration.

NOTE: Each organization will be allowed to have no more than 15 recruiters to facilitate these 1:1 sessions and group sessions. You must have staff available for the duration of the fair to accommodate students whose schedules require attendance later in the day.
