Branding and recruitment opportunities

The Nevada Career Studio organizes programming opportunities for employers to recruit students and connect with the Wolf Pack. If you want to engage with students about your organization and employment needs, read below for branding and recruitment options.

Disclaimer: The opportunities listed below may not be available due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation or staffing availability. Please email us at careers@unr.edu for more information.

Employers who are not in compliance with University policies will be asked to leave the event they are attending and/or not allowed to participate in future Nevada Career Studio events.

 

Information sessions

  • What: An opportunity for employers to talk with students about specific available positions and what it is like to work at and be a part of your organization.
    • Information sessions are typically one hour: 30-45 minutes of presentation and 15-30 min. of Q&A. We accommodate more or less time.
  • Who: Any employer who is Handshake-approved at the University of Nevada, Reno.
  • When: Any time during the semester you think students will be available to attend. 
  • Why: To meet students, raise awareness about your brand, and promote your employment opportunities.

In-person information sessions

In-person information sessions hosted on campus will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Email us at careers@unr.edu to speak with one of our Employer Relations team members.

Virtual information sessions

Employers can post an event on their Handshake account. Once you create your virtual event on Handshake, email us at careers@unr.edu and one of our Employer Relations team members will review your virtual event for approval.

 

Tabling

Promote your opportunities to students by tabling in a high-traffic area on campus. Meet with students casually and share details about your organization and upcoming openings.

Tabling event participation will be assigned the following priority order:

  1. Employer sponsors
  2. Career fair participants
  3. Non-career fair participants

Once the Nevada Career Studio confirms with its employer sponsors on the selected dates for their tabling opportunities, our office will open the sign-up process for career fair and non-career fair participants two weeks before the scheduled tabling date. 

To be considered for monthly employer tabling events, non-employer sponsors must submit the Employer Tabling Request form. Participation is limited to one employer tabling event per semester. Priority sign-ups closes one week before the tabling event. Employers who do priority sign-ups will be notified a few days after the priority deadline about their status. If there are openings after the priority deadline, the Nevada Career Studio may consider additional requests, including requests from employers who did not register for a career fair.

Spring 2023 employer tabling timeline
Tabling date Sign-up deadline Status email from Nevada Career Studio
Monday, January 30 Friday, January 13 by 5 p.m. Tuesday, January 17
Thursday, February 9 Friday, January 20 by 5 p.m. Monday, January 23
Tuesday, March 14 Friday, February 24 by 5 p.m. Monday, February 27
Wednesday, April 19 Friday, March 31 by 5 p.m. Monday, April 3

If there are more requests than available spots by the priority deadline for a given date and time slot, employers will be chosen via lottery and notified by email of their status. Selected employers will have 2 business days to confirm their tabling slot. If a response is not received by the Nevada Career Studio within the 2 business days, the employer forfeits their opportunity and a different employer will be selected from the waitlist.

Once an employer is offered a tabling spot, they must register (if they had not done so yet) for one of the career fairs before they can accept the tabling opportunity. The only exception is if there are open tabling spots.
