How to request an Information Session
Information sessions are requested in Handshake. 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 and finals week. Please see the Academic Calendar for class schedules. 

Questions about Handshake and requesting an event can be directed to the Employer Relations Team at

Virtual requests - There are no fees associated with holding a virtual information session at Carnegie Mellon University.

On-campus requests - Fees do apply. You'll complete an event order form to reserve an event room, place catering orders and AV order requests.  A staff member will contact you regarding your event contract, logistics and fees.
