Employer Information Sessions
Employer information sessions are a great way to assess opportunities and network with employers. Serving up insight on topics ranging from open positions to organizational culture, they can also help you prepare for an upcoming interview. They're a powerful career-exploration opportunity, conveniently available right here throughout the year.
What to Expect
Often hosted by Princeton alumni, the sessions are typically an hour long and focus on a specific organization. Common topics include:
- Insight on organizational culture
- What the organization is seeking in new hires
- Recruiting-process details
- Information about open positions
Have your eye on a particular organization?
The insights gained here can prove very valuable down the road, from demonstrating your interest to gaining a valuable new contact.
- Sessions for Students with On-Campus Interviews: Some organizations host sessions for applicants scheduled for on-campus recruiting interviews.
- Open sessions: Other organizations open their sessions to all interested students, regardless of whether an interview is scheduled.
