On Campus Recruiting

Information Sessions

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 Handshake and select the ‘Create an Event’ button in the center of your screen on the right.

Registration for Fall 2020 is currently live on Handshake!

Host Coffee Chats

Connect one-on-one with Rice talent over a cup of coffee! Coffee Chats are an informal recruiting event that will take place virtually in the fall semester. We recommend this event to new employers at Rice and to any employers who wish to talk to Rice students individually without the formality of an interview.

To request Coffee Chats, log in to Handshake and select the ‘Create an Event’ button in the center of your screen on the right.

Coffee chats can be hosted "drop-in" style or a schedule can be created to coincide with your event.
