Information Sessions & Pop-Up Booths

Information sessions and pop-up booths are a great way for employers to connect with talented Queen’s students, promote their brand across campus, and meet their recruitment needs. These sessions are a means of networking with industry-interested students and presenting your company, culture and job opportunities.

  • Promoting the event to your target audience
  • Tracking student audience through an online RSVP system
  • Providing a host on the day of the event to ensure optimal event delivery
