Tech Talks

We are inviting employers back on-campus to host programs, information sessions and events! We look forward to supporting all employers whether they plan to recruit on-campus or remotely this coming year.

Employers hosting virtual programs are encouraged to post and advertise these programs on Handshake.  If you have any questions, please email

Tech Talks are more detailed presentations regarding a specific problem your company or team faced, how you diagnosed the issue, and the steps you took to solve it. Tech Talks are often presented by members with first-hand experience of the problem-solving process.

Post your Tech Talk in Handshake

There is no cost to post a Tech Talk in Handshake! You simply have to complete the following steps:

  • Add important details such as the day/time, virtual link (or registration link), speaker bios, and a comprehensive description of what students can expect.
  • Add “Tech Talk” in the title of the event.
  • Promote your Tech Talk by sharing information with select student clubs/organizations and academic administrators.

If hosting a virtual tech talk, employers are responsible for using their own virtual platform, such as Zoom and Microsoft Teams among others, to host and deliver their virtual event.
