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 Spring 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
Colleges often host networking events during the week of Spring Career Days. These are great ways to meet in a smaller setting and find employers who are aligned with your potential career goals.
- Check with your College Career Office to upcoming events
- Volunteer at Spring Career Days
Pay it forward by volunteering.
