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 (i.e., alumni panel, interview preparation, simulation, competition, industry-specific panel or presentation).

To request an Information Session,  log in to RICElink: Powered by Handshake and select the ‘Create an Event’ button in the center of your screen on the right.
