Host an Event
Texas McCombs offers employers the opportunity to host virtual or in-person informational events during certain weeks of each academic semester.
We are happy to work with you to host a McCombs-exclusive event or to promote an existing event through our recruiting systems.
Your Recruitment Account Manager can help you coordinate Texas McCombs Best Practices for Employer Events_External specific to your company:
Information Sessions and Workshops
Represent your company brand and present your organization to prospective candidates
- Typically one hour; held Monday-Wednesday evenings
- May be held virtually or in a classroom on campus
- Recommended for employers with a strong, existing presence on campus
- Presentation portion recommended to last no more than 30 minutes, followed by a Q&A session, networking or breakout groups
- Focus content on information not easily found online such as company culture, interview processes, specific roles and career paths
- Enhance participant engagement by including a virtual office tour, a panel discussion, or other instructive content
- In addition to recruiters, students value hearing from recent alumni and representatives currently in the roles being recruited
Dedicate time for one-on-one or small group conversations with prospective candidates to allow for in-depth conversations regarding recruiting, company culture, and more
- Typically held during the day over the span of a few hours
- 15- or 20-minute prescheduled time slots recommended
- 1:1 conversations recommended if possible, with the option for multiple employer representatives to host chats simultaneously
- Beneficial for both new employers looking to build brand awareness and employers seeking deeper engagement opportunities with prospective candidates
