Host Networking & Information Sessions

Employers may host presentations about their organization year round. Early fall (September and October) is the most requested time for these events, so if this is your desired timeframe, we recommend scheduling as far in advance as possible.

These meetings are valuable for both students and employers, but we caution that it can be difficult to build an audience, depending on the time of year. We cannot guarantee student attendance, and it is possible that very few students will attend your presentation. Especially for organizations that are new to recruiting at Harvard, we recommend attending one of our industry specific career fairs or hosting coffee chats/office hours. Should you decide to host an individual event, please see our guidelines below.

Scheduling Networking & Information Sessions

All recruiting events must be requested via the registration form and confirmed by the Recruiting team. You will receive a confirmation email when your requested date & time has been approved. Confirmation is required prior to our office promoting your event details.

  • Events should be requested via Crimson Careers by navigating to Events > My Events > Request Event
  • Fees: There is a $200 promotion fee per event which includes promotion through our events calendar and email lists. Additionally, employers who choose to advertise a recruiting event will receive a featured posting and access to the Recruiting Resume Book, an opt-in resume book for students. There are no fees for nonprofit or government organizations.
    • There is no fee for virtual for-profit events taking place after September 25 for the fall semester and after February 28 for the spring semester.
