  • Industry trek or company site visit

This is an excellent opportunity for students to learn more about your organization, meet members of your team, and get a sense for what working for your company would be like.

This is an opportunity to converse and connect with students to maintain brand presence on campus. The format may include a short student-focused topic presentation and then Q&A. These informal sessions target professional development content, provide an interactive opportunity for students to ask questions and allow them to understand your hiring needs and processes.
