Many employers host local receptions during the academic year to meet and network with our students. We recommend that you consult both the academic and events calendars when selecting a reception date. Although the CPDC does not control the scheduling of employer receptions, we aim to help identify potential conflicts once you have your date in mind. When you are ready to promote your event, the CPDC can help. We will share the class email contact list with you, and you can invite students directly. You can also publicize your reception on our internal recruiting calendar. Consult the 1L receptions memo and contact Susan Anderson for help with publicizing your event.
