Important Recruiting Dates
What Will Fall 2020 Look Like?
On July 6, Georgetown University announced its plan for the Fall of 2021, inviting first year students in the Class of 2024 along with select members of the graduating class of 2021 to campus this fall. You can read more about the university’s plan here.
Because of this hybrid model, the Cawley Career Education Center is planning for all fall information sessions, employer events, interviews, and career fairs to take place in a virtual environment. If your organization does not have its own virtual platform with which to conduct information sessions, coffee chats, or one-on-one interviews, please indicate as such in your Handshake event request and we are happy to assist using our technology.
Please see below for a list of scheduled virtual events and important dates for employers. We will keep employers updated via email through Handshake with further developments regarding the fall and student activities. Please be sure your organization’s Handshake staff profile is up-to-date to ensure current points-of-contact are receiving our information!
