Employer Services - Information Sessions

Well orchestrated, an information session can be an integral part of your overall campus recruiting strategy. Hosting a session allows you to promote your organization and opportunities and meet prospective candidates.

Graduate and Professional Schools interested in hosting an info session should review this separate set of procedures.

Step 1: Plan your Date

Coordinate the date of your information session with your other campus activities, such as career fairs, on-campus recruiting interview dates and deadlines, student organization events, EECS CAP events, and the general UC Berkeley event calendar.

Many employers hold their events during the resume submission period for their OCR interviews, or the evening before, to fill empty slots on their interview schedules.

Contact Employer Relations at (510) 642-0464 or ocr@berkeley.edu if you need assistance with choosing a date.

Attention Consulting Firms and Investment Banks ONLY:  In order to avoid overlapping events, you must reserve a date and time to hold your info session before you begin to set it up. View available dates here.  Once we confirm your date and time, you may proceed to Step 2 below. 

Step 2: Book your Venue

Review this list of popular campus venues.  You may choose a venue from this list, or another venue of your choice, and must make all arrangements directly with that venue. 

Step 3: Advertise your Information Session

Once you have made facility arrangements, log in to Handshake and select Create an Event to submit your information session details.  We will approve your event so that students can view the event on the Handshake calendar and RSVP.
