Types of On-Campus Recruiting

Our office offers a variety of ways that students can connect with employers, which we call, “on-campus recruiting.”

Information Tables

An on-campus information table is an informal ‘meet and greet’ where students and organization representatives get to know each other through short, casual conversations. At a table, information is shared regarding the organization and employment/internship opportunities.

Tables are located in high-traffic areas on campus and are usually hosted Monday – Friday between 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. allowing students to stop by in-between classes or during lunch. 

Information Sessions

An on-campus information session is an organized presentation or coordinated event (i.e. open house, panel discussion) that students attend to learn more about an organization, industry, or topic. For example: ‘Tech Talks,’ which is where an organization shares new technology within the industry, or ‘Meet the Employer,’ which is where students learn and ask questions regarding the organization, employment/internship opportunities, and recruiting process and timeline.

Sessions are held in University meeting rooms or virtually and are hosted Monday – Friday, usually after 5 p.m. when most students have completed class for the day. 

Office Hours

Office Hours are one-on-one informational interviews/meetings between an organization’s representative and a Richmond student. In these meetings, the student will gain a greater understanding of the organization, industry, employment/internship opportunities, and recruiting process and timeline. Students attend Office Hours with prepared questions to ask the representative.

Office Hours are held on campus at the Queally Center Career Services office or virtually. Office Hours are held Monday – Friday from 9 a.m. – 4:45 p.m. and they are scheduled in either 15, 20, or 30-minute sessions throughout the half-or full-day.
