Company Networking Events

Many companies visit campus with the goal of promoting their company to students. Find out what a company does, and what kind of opportunities may exist for you there by attending a company info session. Some of these companies pair up their info session with on campus interviewing the following day.

Most are open to any student or alumnus who is interested in finding out more about an organization and connecting with recruiters. Find the list of company info sessions under 'Events'. Check the Handshake Event Calendar which includes all the workshops, company networking/info sessions and events.
