Employer Checklist

Before the Conference

Tips During the Conference

  • Leave enough time to set up and be ready to meet with students who arrive at the start of the conference.
  • Keep booth space in mind. More than 2 recruiters will "crowd" the space and may intimidate students.
  • Create a welcoming space for open conversation. Avoid sitting behind the table or working on a laptop.
  • Students plan to attend the conference up to the end. Stay the entire time to meet with all interested candidates. Leaving early may make a poor impression with students.
  • Students attending range from freshmen through seniors and alumni. Some students may be exploring career options. Keep in mind these students might be candidates for one of your positions in the future.

After the Conference 

Did any students catch your attention? If so, follow-up with them. Not only are students competing for jobs, but you may be competing for quality candidates.
