Together, these opportunities enable you to get to know students and postdocs across disciplines and share information about your organization.

On-Campus and Virtual Interviews

Employers are invited to hold formal interviews or informal coffee chats with interested graduate student and postdoctoral candidates. UChicagoGRAD can promote virtual or on-campus interview opportunities to targeted groups, and we can collect required materials (resumes, statements of interest) from students and/or postdocs. Begin by signing up for an employer account in GRAD Gargoyle. For more information, contact Michael Tessel at UChicagoGRAD.

Information Sessions / Tech-Talks / Webinars

Employer information sessions that target graduate students and postdocs usually attract between 15-30 candidates and last 60-90 minutes. UChicagoGRAD plans all logistics, including room scheduling and promotion. We invite employers who would like to present remotely to be in touch as well. Info sessions can be planned in conjunction with interviews, or they can be standalone events. Begin by signing up for an employer account in GRAD Gargoyle.
