More information on all Tulane Energy programs can be found here.
We generally have between 90-150 students attend the event representing all of the programs mentioned above.
5. What will Employers have an option of participating in?
We are asking employers to stay and participate for as much of the day as they can. You will have an opportunity to select your options on the registration form.
Your options are:
a. Concurrent Information Sessions - 3 blocks of 45 minute information sessions where you can present your company, discuss roles and recruiting within your organization and engage in Q&A with students. The information sessions are a great way to bring recent Tulane graduates working at your organization to the event and meet with students.
b. Energy Expo - This event is a "stand-up" career fair. We provide employers with a hi-boy cocktail table to engage with with students in an open networking event. We produce this event this way so you don't have to worry about lugging too many materials to the event. You can bring a pull-up banner and brochures if you like and that's really all you need.
c. Networking Reception - The networking reception is available to you as both a thank you for joining us during the day but also an opportunity for you to meet local Houston Tulane Alumni who may have experience already and are looking to move to a new company or fill roles that you have for those who are already graduated.
6. How many representatives can I bring?
There is no limit. Bring as many as you like.
7. Will there be refreshments?
Yes. All of your meals will be provided including a lunch for employers. We will have coffee and snacks available all day.
8. For the Information Sessions, will there be A/V equipment?
Yes, we will have a standard LCD Projector for each session. We ask that you bring your laptop to connect to the projector. Please make sure you have all adaptors needed to connect via VGA or HDMI. We will have some adaptors but it does become an issue sometimes for MacBook users. Additionally, if you have a thin-platform PC, make sure you have your adaptor that came with the machine typically labeled a "mini-HDMI" connector.
9. What about parking?
We will have discounted valet parking for employers or you may self-park in the lot next to the hotel. We do not pay for parking.
10. Can I interview onsite?
We will have limited space for formal interviewing. Generally, those employers who want to interview will connect with a candidate and talk with them informally in any of the lobby spaces in the hotel. However, please let us know when you register if you think you may want to conduct 30-minute interviews while you are there.
11. Do we get resumes of candidates attending?
Yes, we will send a resume book at least 5 days before the event.
12. Should we post jobs?
Yes, as we get closer to the event in mid-August we will ask you to send us job postings so we can make them available to students.
