Engaging with Hoyas

As an employer, you have a variety of ways to engage with Georgetown students, including career fairs, information sessions, coffee chats, office hours, and through one-on-one interviews.

The Cawley Career Education Center will accept event requests for Fall 2020 events from all employers beginning on Wednesday, July 6, 2020. All requests can be made through Handshake.

Looking for more ways to engage? Feel free to reach out to Rebecca Cassidy, associate director of employer relations, at Rebecca.Cassidy@georgetown.edu.
