The Fall Recruiting Showcase is an essential preparation event for the on-campus recruiting program and the fall recruiting fair. The event is designed to help you learn about opportunities and make connections with key employers in a casual, low-stakes format. It is intended for all interest levels, so even if you aren’t sure whether a career in business is for you, this is a great way to learn more directly from employers.

During the first part of the event, students will hear short pitches from each of our employer guests.  In the pitches, representatives will touch upon company culture, what they look for in candidates, jobs and internships they have available, and other interesting details about their company.  Students and employer representatives will then spill out into the Tomson Atrium for an opportunity to network with alumni and recruiting representatives to foster deeper connections and learn about the application and interview process for the various opportunities.

The Showcase is an excellent way to learn about your options, and put your best foot forward during the on campus recruiting program, and the Fall Recruiting Fair.

How to Prepare to Get the Most Out of the Event:

  • Attend prep sessions!
  • Review the participating employer pitches prior to the event and do some initial research on each company before attending. Each employer has a limited amount of time so the more research you can do in advance, the easier it will be to identify employers with which you wish to connect. Give some thought to questions that you plan to ask the employers. Take notes and follow-up with the employers on any questions afterward. This is a connections-oriented event, so note that all formal applications for internships or jobs need to be submitted via Handshake.
  • Ensure your Handshake profile is complete, and upload a resume for employer participants to view.
