Employer Information Session

An Employer Information Session is a presentation given by an employer to provide you with details about a specific job opening or about various career paths and benefits offered by their company.  Remember, the goal of these sessions is to lead you to potential interviews with the employer!  The benefits of an Information Session are varied: 

  • This is an excellent opportunity to speak directly with the company representative in a personalized, information environment.

  • The session offers a realistic, insider’s viewpoint of the company’s work environment.

  • Students repeatedly say it is more satisfying to talk face-to-face with employers than to merely search a company web site.

  • This is an opportunity to network with the employer and ask questions.

 What to Expect 

  • Sessions may run one to three hours in length. You must be on time for the start of the information sessions.

  • Presentations may address an employer’s services, career opportunities, business culture, and facility sites. 

  • A question and answer period typically follows.

  • Time is allotted for individual or small group interactions.

Who Can Attend

 

Employer recruitment events are open to TCC students, alumni, former students; veterans; military spouses; active duty members separating from the service; and the general public.

  

How to Get the Most from Information Sessions 

  • Read the employer’s position description or literature to establish a base for asking intelligent and specific questions.

  • Bring copies of your resume and make yourself known to the employer.

  • Have a pen and paper available to take notes.

  • Obtain a business card to send a follow-up or thank you letter.

  • If you are unable to secure an interview, follow-up with a resume and cover letter a few days later to show continued interest.
