Employer Information Sessions

What is an Employer Information Session?

Typically an hour in length, these informative presentations are an opportunity for students to learn more about a prospective employer, meet company recruiters, and explore career options.

Why Attend an Employer Information Session?

  • To gain insight about the employer's history, mission and goals, training programs, products and services, and management styles
  • To develop a networking system by talking with company representatives
  • To take the opportunity to meet the recruiter in a more informal environment; outside of the formal interview setting
  • To ask questions and interact with recruiters

Who Should Attend an Employer Information Session?

  • Any UW-Platteville student interested in learning more about a specific employer, especially students who are scheduled to interview with a particular employer.
  • Special restrictions may apply to some employers who schedule an information session. If restrictions exist, they will be posted on Pioneer Career Network. To view restrictions, go to: 'Events' tab and view the Employer Information Session details.
  • Students interviewing with an employer that schedules an Employer Information Session are required to attend the session.
