Host an Information Session 

Information sessions are a great way to promote your company’s opportunities and interact with potential candidates before your interviews.  These sessions allow students to get to know your organization beyond the job description.  You may also create a specialized session unique to your organization (e.g., alumni panel, interview preparation, simulation, competition, industry-specific panel or presentation).   

To request an Information Session, log in to RICElink and follow the Quick Link on the right side of your home page titled "Request Information Session."

Advertising Your Session

Your session is posted to students online. We also include it in the CCD Headlines, our weekly newsletter. We encourage you to send us a flyer (please email to ccd@rice.edu). We also encourage you to consider advertising in the student newspaper, The Rice Thresher. This weekly publication is widely read and can be very effective.
