Scheduling Presentations for MIT Students On or Near Campus
Company presentations and information sessions are great opportunities to meet MIT students, raise their awareness and interest in your company, and we strongly recommend them. Under normal circumstances we would not manage these types of events, but due to current on-campus limitations we have established a process for virtual events (see below). Please visit Handshake for a complete list of scheduled presentations on our events calendar.
Host Virtual Information Sessions or Events:
Your organization can host virtual events to promote internships or full-time opportunities, career exploration and more. We encourage you to create these virtual events in Handshake and extend them to MIT so that they appear on our events calendar and allow us help drive awareness. If you are hosting the event or asking students to RSVP using an external platform, please include that link in the program details. For best results, we encourage you to provide details about the session, desired target audience, and also have minimal restrictions so all interested students can participate.
Organizing On-Campus Presentations
Company presentations are managed by the Fall Career Fair during the week of the Fall Career Fair. Due to limited space on campus and a high volume of requests, presentations the week of the Fall Career Fair may not be available to all Fall Career Fair sponsors. Please visit the Fall Career Fair site to learn more and register at https://career-fair.mit.edu/
During the rest of the year, MIT Conference Services manages company events on campus. Submit their online request form to schedule a room and reserve AV equipment.
Once your presentation is confirmed, Conference Services will post your event on events calendar and on Handshake. Please email Conference Services for information on how to ship materials for confirmed presentations to campus.
For a well-attended session, follow our advice for advertising on campus.
We can’t staff your events, but we’ve put together these Company Presentation Tips (pdf) to help you prepare your session and target it to MIT students.
