Recommendations:

Each corporate partner is responsible with creating a link to their video conference and providing it to Jason King, by September 30th.

  • Consider using safety precautions such as a meeting password and unique meeting link.
  • Feel free to utilize the entire 1.5 hours of your session—you may consider allowing time for a Q&A portion with students.
  • Depending on your focus for the information/recruitment session, you may consider having multiple breakout sessions to cover different topics you would like to discuss.
  • If your company does plan to have multiple breakout sessions, we highly encourage a university relations/HR representative being partnered with a technical lead.
  • We encourage companies to test their video conferencing platform and do a dry-run through prior to the event to work out any technical aspects.
  • ICS highly encourages the Zoom platform capacity to be at least 300 for potential attendees.
