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 Handshake and select the ‘Create an Event’ button in the center of your screen on the right.Registration for Fall 2019 will open May 1
