Why Host One?


Here's why you want to host an Information Session/Tech Talk at San José State University:

  • Promote your career or internship opportunities to a richly diverse student body.
  • Build or expand your brand on campus through Career Center connections.
  • Enhance your recruiting strategy.
  • Meet and network with our student candidates.

 

How It Works...


Information Sessions are held Tuesday through Thursday from 12:30 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. and must be scheduled at least three weeks prior to the date of the session. Due to limited resources, information sessions will not be scheduled during September 2 – 30, 2014.

There is a fee for each session that is due at the time of your reservation. If you are a non-profit organization or government agency, please call to inquire about pricing.

Tips For Success


  • Our students want to learn about specific available positions in your organization, so be prepared to discuss opportunities and answer questions.
  • Be sure the positions you are promoting are posted on SpartaJobs, the Career Center’s online job and internship database prior to your session as this is where our students will go to look for opportunities.
  • Share information that students cannot find on the internet. They are interested in learning about what it is like to work at your organization, opportunities for growth, resume tips and what to expect in the interview.
  • Limit time spent on video, multimedia presentations, and in-depth talks on the company history or product development. Increase interest in your organization by talking about opportunities and the experience of working there.
  • Do expect that our students will come prepared with a copy of their resume and want to talk with you directly and ask questions.
  • Most importantly, send positive, interactive, and friendly reps to meet and greet our students.
