Interested in hosting an Employer Information Session?

Looking to host a recruiting event? The Employer Information Session (EIS) team looks forward to helping you coordinate your on-campus event. We're here to assist with all booking logistics, such as venue coordination, A/V booking, and figuring out whether catering is right for your session.

The first step in coordinating your EIS is to submit a registration request form. If you require additional information, please reach out to your University of Waterloo Account Manager, EIS Events Coordinator, or read our FAQ


Why host an info session with Co-operative Education at Waterloo?

  • Complement your campus recruiting strategy for undergraduate and graduate students (co-op and regular) by promoting your brand on campus and connecting with targeted groups of students
  • A unique opportunity to recruit students for your organization by meeting them face to face. EIS is a great way to maintain your on-campus presence alongside consistent hiring and positive word-of-mouth marketing.  

How to request to host an Employer Information Session

  • We accept new EIS registration request forms the first business day of the month prior to the term preceding the hosting term/recruiting term. We're still accepting registrations for Winter 2020 Employer Information Sessions
  • Review the EIS calendar to select a preferred date and time. Please keep in mind that we don't host concurrent sessions for both open and closed sessions that target the same students at the same time
  • Your EIS should complement your campus recruiting strategy, and align with your job postings in WaterlooWorks for undergraduate students - co-op and graduating. Review the co-op and graduating recruiting dates to ensure you submit your job postings by the deadline for students to apply.

  • Haven't posted your jobs in WaterlooWorks yet? Visit the post a job registration form to submit your job postings to be posted in WaterlooWorks for students to apply.
  • Registration request forms submitted less than 10 business days before your requested date, will not be accepted to book. We require at least 11 or more business days to support the booking logistics for info sessions, to ensure venue, catering, and audio-visual support, and to maximize exposure through our promotional channels
  • You'll be contacted by the EIS team after your registration request form is submitted, to discuss your preferences and booking availability
  • Note: EIS serve employers hiring directly into their organization and are exclusive events, representing one employer. This policy applies to third-party recruiters and temp agencies who request to host an employer information session at the University of Waterloo.

Things are changing around here!

Beginning in Winter 2020, students will register for Employer Information Sessions in WaterlooWorks. This means that the “level of interested students” will no longer be available within the EIS calendar. By moving student registration into WaterlooWorks, we will be able to provide better EIS registration and attendance data. Please contact the EIS team if you have questions about your registration numbers.
