Employer Information Sessions
Every year, Career Services advertises and facilitates Employer Information Sessions on or near campus, often in conjunction with their On-Campus Recruiting (OCR) or with participation in Career Fairs.
During these sessions, employers make presentations on topics that include the organization's career opportunities, culture, and products or services. Usually you will have an opportunity to speak with the representatives (often recent OSU grads) in small groups or individually before or after the presentation. Professional or "business casual" dress is appropriate, unless otherwise indicated in the publicity.
How to Find Employer Information Sessions:
To find out details about upcoming information sessions and to RSVP:
- Log into Beaver JobNet
- Click on the "Events" tab at the top and select "Information Sessions"
- Select the date for more information
- Click on RSVP
Space is often limited, and you are encouraged to RSVP for these sessions if you plan to attend. To do so, login to Beaver JobNet, locate the event, click the "RSVP for This Event" button, and you’re done.
Who Should Attend:
The vast majority of Employer Info Sessions are open to all interested students (whether you’re a graduating senior or a sophomore engaged in some initial career exploration), and are a great way for you to learn what it might be like to work for a specific employer or in a given industry or sector. These sessions offer a rare opportunity to talk with recent grads who are working in your field of interest, get answers to your particular questions, and, perhaps, learn more about how to become a stronger candidate. In some cases, employers require that you attend these sessions if you have a scheduled interview with them.
