What is an Information Session?

Employers come to campus to hold an Information Session, usually they are held in early evening. This is a networking opportunity for you to learn about the company/organization and what employment opportunities they have to offer. Also the employer gets to meet you, and employers are always looking for students that take the initiative to come and meet them. Many times you will get a chance to meet with UConn alumni that work at this company/organization. Some employers that are coming on campus to interview will hold a pre-night Information Session for those students that will be interviewing the following day, you will receive a personal invitation directly from the employer. If you are unable to attend please reach out to the employer letting them know.

How to dress for an Information Session?

It is highly recommended that you dress in business casual to give a professional impression.  Be prepared with copies of your résumé.  

How to find out when Information Sessions occur?

Information Sessions are advertised in HuskyCareerLink under the events section. You do not need to RSVP to the event to attend, however if you do RSVP you will receive a reminder to attend.
