Companies may choose to participate in Company Information Day, host a Company Presentation, or host a content presentation. To schedule any of the following recruiting events, please review our event dates and submit your reservation request via Career Hub.
- Company Information Day
Company Information Day is a great way to generate excitement about your company and to initiate communications with interested first-year students. Students have no academic or extra-curricular conflicts during Company Information Day, thus maximizing attendance. Please note companies may choose to participate in Company Information Day or host a Company Presentation; however, companies may not participate in both.
