Employer Events

Employer information sessions and presentations can greatly enhance an employer's on-campus recruitment effort. We are always excited to work with employers to build custom events that press beyond "traditional" information sessions. Beyond Barnard will work with your organization to design programs that suit the interests and needs of the Barnard community, and can help to promote events to students. Email us at beyondbarnard@barnard.edu to get started.

When to Schedule

Early-semester raise student knowledge and awareness about organizations, thereby increasing the number of resumes submitted and candidates interested in an organization’s employment opportunity.  A session held the evening before on-campus interviews allows recruiters to present key information at once to all students on a schedule and to meet additional interested students in an open format. We work with employers to schedule classes around student availability and class schedules.

How to Schedule

All sessions require advance scheduling and preparation, and employers should request these sessions directly through Handshake.   To request an information session, simply login to Handshake with your employer account and click on “Request New Information Session” under the shortcuts areA of the homepage.   Information sessions can take place on-campus Monday through Friday in the fall and spring semesters. Be sure to review the Recruiting Calendar for blackout dates prior to submitting a request. If we are unable to accommodate the date and time requested, we would directly contact you and provide guidance on alternative dates and times available to host you on campus.

Once your session is scheduled we will advertise your event to students and alumnae through our online event calendar in Handshake as well as the public calendar located on the Beyond Barnard website.


Employer participation in on-campus interviews at Beyond Barnard indicates an agreement to abide by our Policies and Procedures as well as the NACE Principles for Professional Conduct for Career Services and Employment Professionals.
