Carnegie Mellon University

Host a Virtual Information Session

Visit Handshake for complete details and registration information on all Events and Workshops. Due to COVID-19 we have made the decision to host all fall 2020 career events virtually for the health and safety of our students and employers. 

BENEFITS OF HOSTING A VIRTUAL INFORMATION SESSION
  • Meet and network with interested students
  • Showcase available internships and full-time positions
  • Highlight company culture and other unique aspects of your organization

HOW TO REQUEST A VIRTUAL INFORMATION SESSION
Information sessions are requested in Handshake and scheduled Monday through Friday from 10:00am through 9:30pm ET.  Event requests should be submitted at least two weeks in advance of the event date. Requests are approved as long as there are no conflicts, i.e. competing companies which have been approved and/or unavailable time slots. We avoid scheduling sessions during class breaks, career fairs (or virtual career fairs), and finals week. Please see the Academic Calendar for class schedules. Remember to provide the external link to your virtual event platform (Zoom, Webex, Microsoft Teams, Etc). A placeholder can be used until a link has been created i.e. Https://Zoom_to_be_provided

THE PROCESS
Once a virtual event has been requested and reviewed, a staff member from the Employer Relations Team will approve the request in Handshake for students to view. Please make sure that your Handshake profile is set to receive notifications so that you receive the approval message. 

An event request will be declined if there are scheduling conflicts, unavailable time slots or campus events scheduled during that time.  A message will be placed in the comment section of your request and/or you will receive an email (if your contact email is available in Handshake).

CONTACTS
Questions about Handshake and requesting an event can be directed to the Employer Relations Team at erelate@andrew.cmu.edu

FEES AND MARKETING
There are no fees associated with holding a virtual information session at Carnegie Mellon University.  Simply place your event request into Handshake.

Once your event request has been “approved”, it will be marketed to all Carnegie Mellon students within the "Events" section of Handshake.
