Helpful Hints & Best Practices: Employer Presentations

We surveyed hundreds of students to collect feedback on the most compelling employer presentations. We've compiled actionable insights for future events:

  • Showcase Fuqua alumni as presenters or moderators.
  • Avoid information that can easily be found online.
  • Be open and genuine about any memorable events/struggles and/or personal stories while serving in roles within the company.
  • Be interactive but avoid singling out students. 
  • Close with “Next Steps”. Share any upcoming networking events or diversity programs.
  • Recording your event is recommended. Following the event, it can be shared with Clubs for distribution.
  • To share your organization’s marketing materials, a company may display QR Code signage. Please refer to Fuqua’s Green Recruiting & Shipping Information for more information.
  • After the event, personalized follow-up with attendees will help maintain connections and move candidates through the hiring process.

Clearly articulate where to find information about:

  • Available roles for the target student population;
  • Hiring timeline;
  • Application processes;
  • Preferred candidate profile;
  • Team culture and alignment with Team Fuqua.

Find innovative ways for students to learn about your organization and interact with employees:

  • Broaden a panel's scope by featuring alumni with varied backgrounds and expertise.
  • Discuss a real-life case study.
  • Provide practical work examples and teach an applicable skill.
  • Incorporate networking either at the session or with Office Hours the next day.
  • Conduct a virtual office tour.

    For off-campus presentations:

    • Consider student transportation options to maximize event attendance.
      • For example, is the location walkable, close to a bus stop, or is your organization willing to provide transportation to attendees?
    • If a networking segment will be incorporated, provide clear signage directing students to representatives (ie., by office, function, etc.)
    • Utilize a microphone during the event, as off-site events may pose communication challenges.  
    • Provide your industry account manager with recruiting representatives' contact information for additional student follow-up.  

    For virtual presentations:

    • Encourage students and presenters to turn on cameras.
    • Designate one presenter to monitor the chat for questions.
    • Organize breakout rooms by question, function, geography, offices, etc., to enhance engagement.
    • Allow students to join & leave at will.
