Tips for Success

  • Our students want to learn about specific available positions in your company, so be prepared to discuss opportunities and answer questions.
  • Be sure the positions you are promoting are posted on SJSU Handshake prior to your session as this is where our students will go to look for positions.
  • Share information that students CANNOT find on the internet. They are interested in learning about what it is like to work at your company, opportunities for growth, resume tips, and what to expect in the interview.
  • Our students find video, multi-media presentations, and in-depth talks on the company history or product development least important and least interesting. Instead, plan to talk about opportunities and the experience of working at your company.
  • 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.
