Connecting With Students & Building Your Brand

The key to successful recruiting at Williams is to build your brand by developing and maintaining a strong presence. The ’68 Center for Career Exploration publicizes all scheduled recruiting events.  If you wish to reach out to student groups or other contacts on campus, we are happy to provide you with that information.

Virtual Information Sessions

Virtual information sessions begin in mid-September and are typically scheduled for Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday evenings between 5 and 8 p.m. EST. These sessions typically run for 45-60 minutes. Please note that we are asking all campus recruiting partners to record their virtual information sessions that are held during the Fall 2020 semester. This is because a large percentage of the Williams students will continue to be enrolled virtually throughout the US and globally. Also, due to updates to the academic schedule Williams students could be enrolled in classes that do not end till 9:45 p.m. EST. By recording your information session, you are allowing access to the entire Williams student population. Please request your virtual information session in Handshake.

Virtual Interviewing

Virtual interviewing begins in September and continues through mid-May. We utilize Handshake’s platform to schedule interviews and manage the transmission of resumes and cover letters.  If you need to adjust your schedule, please contact us so that special arrangements can be made. Once a schedule has been set, we ask that you adhere to it, unless it is an emergency.  You may view your interview schedule online at any time in your Handshake account.

  • If you must cancel an interview schedule after students have signed up, please notify those students of your cancellation directly by phone or by email. Also, please contact the Employer Relations team ([email protected]) to let us know of the change.
