Additional engagement opportunities

Employer-led workshops

Host or co-present on a specific career topic to connect with students interested in a particular industry or job function. Popular topics include technical interviews, career fair preparation, LinkedIn for networking and job search strategies, virtual interviewing, virtual networking, or day in the life of a professional in your field.

Info Sessions

You are welcome to schedule info sessions via Handshake. If you would like us to promote your session, please send the Handshake link to uwbhire@uw.edu

  • If hosting online, select “Virtual” rather than “On-Campus” as the format.
  • The description should include what student population the virtual event is geared towards or what positions/functions will be discussed.
  • Virtual event requests will be reviewed and approved, but beyond that, the employer is free to manage the event however they like.

Internship development & support (including best practices on offering virtual internships)

Receive assistance in jumpstarting your internship opportunities. Internships can be posted on Handshake and employers can also host special information sessions ahead of their internship recruitment cycle. Interested in a project-based micro-internship? We are here to help. Resources and assistance can be provided to organizations who are developing a job description or an entire internship experience. These experiential learning opportunities offer a great way to connect with potential future employees while providing students an opportunity to gain professional experience. View resources.

"Meet the recruiter" / "Ask me anything" career sessions

This is an opportunity to converse and connect with students online 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.
