Booking a Corporate Event
More than 200 companies hold Corporate Conversations and Meet-n-Greets each year. Requests for corporate events can be made through Global Talent Solutions (GTS). If you are unable to request an event through GTS, or if you have questions, please contact your Relationship Manager or call us at 773.702.7405.
For step-by-step instructions on how to complete a variety of tasks in GTS, including updating your contact information and requesting interviews or recruiting events, refer to the GTS Quick Reference Guide (PDF).
Scheduling an Event
Corporate events are most effective when coordinated with your interview date. If you are hosting on-campus interviews, we recommend you host your on-campus event at least four weeks prior to your interview date when possible.
While several events may be scheduled at the same time, we will not schedule firms in the same industry recruiting for similar positions at the same time. For the 2013 - 14 recruiting season, second-year events start on September 23, 2013. No first-year-only or first- and second-year events can be held prior to October 21, 2013.
Due to high demand, firms may submit a request for one second-year event and one first-year event during the initial booking period, which takes place in May. Beginning in June, we will be happy to schedule additional events as the schedule permits.
If you submit an event request in May, within two weeks you will receive written confirmation of your event date and time. When possible, we'll confirm the location as well. However, classroom space cannot be confirmed until early September. We'll also send information on advertising your event, arranging catering, ordering audio/visual equipment, and shipping event materials. Events requested after the May booking period will be confirmed within a week.
