Corporate Information Session
The mission of the Corporate Information Session (CIS) program is to foster professional relationships between students and recruiters, in a comfortable, relaxed environment. The sessions generally consist of two parts: company presentation and networking.
We invite you to host an information session. The Society of Women Engineers provides you with a hassle-free approach to recruiting. The CIS committee will coordinate all the logistics, catering and publicity for your session. To register for an information session, see the information below. In an effort to constantly improve our program we welcome and encourage your feedback. If you have any comments or suggestions please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your continued support!
*** Disclaimer: In accordance with University of Michigan College of Engineering policy, all recruitment will be online for Fall 2020. All aspects of corporate information sessions will be changed to accommodate this. ***
CIS sessions are held Monday through Wednesday evenings during the fall and winter semesters. The time slots for these sessions are: 6:00-7:30pm and 6:30-8:00pm. You may register for the date and time of your choice. We will schedule a maximum of three companies per evening. However, exceptions are made during the time of career fair in the fall and winter semesters.
After your registration is received, we will schedule a room for your session through university scheduling services. Every room we assign is on North Campus. We will do our best to accommodate room requests, but cannot guarantee availability. Every room is equipped with an LCD projector (to hook a laptop up to). To view classroom options and amenities, click here.
When company representatives arrive for a CIS, they will be welcomed by a SWE representative. The officer is knowledgeable about the equipment in the room and is there to assist you.
You will receive a confirmation email when we finish processing your request. This will be done within two weeks of when we receive your registration. During the summer our processing time is extended to three weeks. If you have questions sooner than that, please email email@example.com.
Registration for Fall 2020 is now open. We are continuing to plan sessions as normal at this time.
Cost and Fees
We ask for a processing fee that will go to the Society of Women Engineers for our services in setting up the session. Your support enables us to keep this program going. Processing fees are dependent on the date of your session. Please see the dates below to see how much you will be charged:
September 8-9: $200
September 14-16: $200
September 21-23: $150
All Other Dates: $100
An invoice will be emailed to you within a week of your session. Invoices are not typically sent out until after the session is complete since the total may change because of last minute changes or late fees.
Reminder: SWE Corporate and Alumni Relations are not affiliates with SWE/TBP Career Fair or the Winter ECRC Career Fair.
Late Fees and Cancellation Fees:
If you register, cancel or make significant changes to your session within 10 days of your session you will be charged a $50 late fee. If we have not received payment within 30 days following your session, a late fee of $50 will be added to your invoice and you will be notified. Please note that we will not accept any new CIS requests until all previous balances are cleared.
If you have any questions about the cost of a CIS session please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We would be happy to answer all your questions and explain our policies.
Our committee has a Publicity Officer to ensure your session is well advertised. We will work with you to customize publicity to suit your recruitment needs. We have several advertisement methods:
Flyers: Flyers will be posted around North Campus the day before and the day of your information session. The flyer will display the necessary information about your company's information session. If you would like us to hang flyers or posters that you have created, please email them to email@example.com.
Calendars: A "Next Day Summary" email will be sent out to the entire College of Engineering every day with information on the sessions that will be occuring the following day. An "10 Day Summary" email is also sent out to the entire College every Tuesday with the same information. The information sessions are also posted on the Engineering Career Resource Center Additional Corporate Events calendar.
Department Emails: An email is sent to most of the departments in the College of Engineering with information on the upcoming information sessions for the following week. The departments will forward this information onto their students every Friday.
Independent Methods: We welcome you to advertise your session through any preferred medium. If you have a suggested means of advertising that we have not considered, we would appreciate your input. Please email our Publicity Officer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
