What are information tables?
Information tables are opportunities for employers to promote their organization and relevant opportunities to Loyola students at a table in the Danna Student Center. Typically, information tables are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. during a scheduling period called “the window.” During “the window,” there are no academic classes scheduled. Student traffic in the Danna Student Center is high during "the window" because this building contains student lunch options and is located in the center of campus. Scheduled information sessions are marketed to students as opportunities to “drop-by” in-between classes to speak with employers and learn more about their opportunities. Information tables are informal opportunities for employers to connect with a large number of students.
How do I sign up for an information table?
Email email@example.com with your request. Information tables are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis.
What should I bring?
We encourage employers to bring branded, identifying materials (table cloth, sign with the company logo, pamphlets) and information about your organization’s opportunities. The table dimensions are:
Height: 42 inches
Length: 72 inches
Width: 36 inches
What else is required from me?
Information tables are free of charge; however, we do require that employers do the following:
- Post all job or internship opportunities you will be recruiting for in Handshake at least 10 days prior to your information table. Information about posting job and internship opportunities on Handshake can be found here.
- Track student attendance (we will provide you with a sign-in sheet) and provide a copy to the Career Development Center upon completion of your information table.
