Information Sessions & Information Tables

Many recruiters are interested in setting up informational sessions as part of their ongoing campus recruitment. Information sessions can be set-up as part of an on-campus recruitment schedule or as a way for recruiters to provide more in-depth information about opportunities. Generally, information sessions are in the Coates Student Center and are set-up by Career Services. 

Career Services may be able to assist organizations to target specific student organizations or may suggest to a faculty member that an organization is available to speak with their class. Approval of requests for  classroom presentations are at the sole discretion of the faculty member.

Employers can also improve on-campus visibility by setting up an information table in the Coates Student Center. During the fall and spring semesters, Career Services can assist employers to set up information tables in the Coates Student Center. Tables are generally available Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tables are scheduled per the discretion of the Facilities Manager. Career Services reserves the right to limit the number of tables that an individual employer may host during a given semester.

Request an information session or information table by emailing Career Services at careerservices [at] trinity.edu.
