Host On-campus Info Sessions, Table Sits, Interviews, and Career Programming
In addition to on-campus recruiting events, some employers may benefit from hosting other on-campus engagement opportunities to reach their target audience.
Promotion of On-Campus Activity
Promotion of on-campus activity is in the hands of the employer. Below are a few recommendations to increase student attendance:
- Request your event in Handshake under the Events tab. Once approved, students can view the event and even register in advance if you would like to allow that option.
- Request additional promotion of your event through other campus entities. You may reach out to student organizations, academic departments, or our office Liaisons to send materials to colleges and departments of your choice. We recommend strategic and personal outreach as opposed to mass emails to gain participation. Each department and academic college on campus follows its own policies for allowable postings and flyers in their buildings, therefore, the promotion will be at their discretion.
- Employers may also tag the LSU Olinde Career Center (@LSUCareerCenter) on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter postings about on-campus activity. Sharing of employer social media posts is at the discretion of the LSU Olinde Career Center.
Info sessions provide an opportunity for employers to meet informally with students to promote awareness and build excitement about your organization outside of formal recruiting events and on-campus interviews. Info Sessions can be held virtually or in-person, on-campus, or off-campus. Reservations for in-person, on campus info sessions depend on space availability.
To request an info session, please log into Handshake and follow these instructions. The employer is responsible for promoting your event. If you have any questions about info sessions or would like to advice on how to promote your event, please contact Garnesha Beck at email@example.com.
Employers may request to reserve a table on campus to host a table sit. Table sits are typically in high-traffic student spaces in front of the LSU Student Union. Space availability is at the discretion of the LSU Student Union. Most table sits rely on students passing by as their audience, and any additional promotion of the table sit is in the hands of the employer. Request a table sit here.
