We Encourage Each Host To

  • Spend limited time talking about company information that is readily available on its website.
  • Clearly state his/her role in the company.
  • Walk students through a typical day.
  • Avoid industry jargon unless it is carefully explained.  Keep the information high level and drill down during Q&A if necessary.
  • Orient the presentation around students’ questions.
