Companies schedule time on campus prior to Fall Career Days to meet and greet potential candidates. These information sessions are a great way to learn about a company, meet recruiters in a less formal and more personable way, and make a great first impression.

Make the Most of Info Sessions
Research the organization before you go
Understand what they do, what openings they have available, and any new products or initiatives.
Prepare some questions
This is great chance to ask recruiters questions about company culture and unique things they're proud of. Keep notes and reference them when you connect at Fall Career Days to show your interest.
Use it as a networking opportunity
Talk with the recruiters and learn how they got started at that company. What do they suggest as a great way to get experience? What are the key characteristics and skills they look for in candidates? What advice do they have for an undergraduate student who is just getting started?
- College-Specific Networking Events
