Every year, the FIU’s SCIS host Employer Information Sessions on campus, often in conjunction with Career and Talent Development or with participation in Career Fairs.
What They Are
During these sessions, employers make presentations on topics that include the organization’s career opportunities, culture, and products or services. Usually, you will have an opportunity to speak with the representatives in small groups or one-on-one before or after the presentation. Professional or “business casual” dress is appropriate unless otherwise indicated and have your resume ready.
Who Should Attend
The vast majority of Employer Information Sessions are open to all interested students and are a great way for you to learn what it might be like to work for a specific employer or in a given industry.
These sessions offer a rare opportunity to talk with recent grads who are working in your field of interest, get answers to your questions, and learn more about how to become a stronger candidate. In some cases, employers require that you attend these sessions if you have a scheduled interview with them.
