Employer Information Sessions

Employer visits are scheduled on mySuccess and require advance registration. Log in to mySuccess and check the workshops and events calendar in the Career Services section.

Employers visit the Carleton campus during the fall and winter semesters to hire Carleton co-op and graduating students for co-op and career opportunities. In an on-campus employer information session you can learn about:

  • employment opportunities
  • service or product overviews
  • workplace culture
  • hiring process and practices
  • tips for career development

Preparation Tips for Employer Information Sessions

  1. Review the information session description and job postings on mySuccess to determine which sessions are best for you to attend.
  2. When attending an information session consider it a professional meeting opportunity to impress an employer and be remembered. We recommend students dress business casual when attending sessions.
  3. Prior to attending, research the organization and their career opportunities, this will provide you with an opportunity to engage with the employer and ask questions.
  4. Bring an updated professional resume to the session just in case the employer is willing to accept it.
  5. All sessions will have the opportunity to network with employer representatives, be prepared to introduce yourself, share information about yourself and ask good questions. Prepare an elevator pitch to introduce yourself and include the following: what you are studying, when you will graduate, key strengths, career interests, and a question to continue the conversation.
  6. Prepare to ask relevant questions, use your research to prepare at least three questions.
  7. when closing your conversation with the employer, thank them for their time and offer your resume. You may also ask for their business card to follow up.
  8. Send a short email to follow up with the employer within a week of the session to re-iterate your interest in their organization and career opportunity.
