We are excited to be able to offer some in-person Meet & Greets in 2022-23 as companies are able to accommodate student visitors. Virtual connections continue to be an option.
The Meet and Greet is a one-time meeting between students and mentors that takes place at the company. You and your students will take a bus to the company. Most Meet and Greets are held over the lunch hour, but variations in the time of day are possible. Every event includes an overview of the company, time for students and mentor to get to know one another, and lunch or a snack. Mentors often show students their worksite by providing a tour. Tours may be organized for groups or led individually. Meet and Greets may also include other structured activities. Popular activities include mock interview experiences, resume reviews, or career panels.
