Employers: Receptions

Want an opportunity to meet our students before the fair even started?
Want to check-in early and save time in the morning of the fair?
Want to talk to students while enjoying a delicious light dinner?
Attend our career fair receptions!

The career fair receptions are opportunities for student and corporate representatives to interact and network in a relatively relaxed setting. Receptions are free of charge, and corporate representatives are encouraged to attend the evening before their registered date at the Career Fair. Participation at receptions will also give corporate representatives the opportunity for early check-in, eliminating the need for check-in on the morning of the actual fair.

A few additional notes: 

  • Since the intention is to create a more relaxed atmosphere, we do not allow students to bring resumes.

  • While registration is not required for receptions, we encourage companies to RSVP so that we can get an accurate headcount. RSVP links will be sent out via email a few weeks before the fair. 

  • The receptions take place in building atriums where recruiters typically chat with students without any booths or major setup. There are tables and chairs set up around the venue for attendees to talk around.

  • Like the career fair, most recruiters wear company t-shirts or other apparels to identify themselves. 

  • There is no cap on the number of representatives from one company.

If you have more questions, please contact us at careerfair@umich.edu. We look forward to seeing you at the receptions!
