Are you ready for Fall 2011 Info Sessions?

September 01, 2011

Access: 

Fall 2011 Info Sessions will begin on Tuesday, September 7th.
Are you ready?!

Info Sessions are a great opportunity to learn about on-campus recruiting employers and the opportunities they have available with their companies.  Are you prepared to take advantage of our fall 2011 info sessions?

 

IS YOUR CALENDAR UPDATED?

Review the events calendar in Lionshare and add the dates, times and locations of the info sessions that you plan on attending to your personal calendar.

 

DO YOU KNOW WHAT M&A MEANS?

 

Employers expect that you will bring a basic knowledge of their industry to an info session. Make sure you are familiar with industry terminology.  Check out the industry resources on the CCE website to learn more. For careers in finance or consulting don't forget to attend CCE's Super Friday on Friday, September 9th.

 

WHAT WAS THEIR FIRST IMPRESSION?

 

Did you arrive late?  Only show up for the free food?  Were you texting while they were talking?  Info sessions are a good way to make a great first impression with an employer – and a bad one too.  Arrive early and give the presenter your full attention.

 

HOW GOOD IS YOUR MEMORY?

 

When you write your cover letter and are preparing for your interview you’ll want to remember what the firm presented at their info session.  What is their company culture like?  What type of candidate are they looking for?  What questions do they regularly ask candidates during interviews? Take notes and keep them organized for future use.

 

HAVE MORE QUESTIONS?

 

Stop by CCE for a 10 minute walk-in appointment Monday through Friday from 1pm to 4pm to strategize with a counselor on how to get the most out of fall info sessions.  Arrive early to secure a walk-in time slot.
