Career Pop-Ins

Industry-themed Meet-ups and Pop-ins

What are Meet-ups and Pop-ins?

Meet-ups (in-person) and Pop-ins (virtual) are medium-sized recruitment events organized around specific industries and interest areas. 

Examples of past themes:

  • Careers in Healthcare and Life Sciences
  • Careers in Sustainability
  • Careers in Start-ups
  • Careers for the Greater Good

Employers enjoy participating in these events because they are more targeted and smaller than career fairs, allowing you to engage more deeply and authentically with students. For example, each event features between 5-15 employers and an average of 60 student attendees.

For in-person Meet-ups, we purposefully aim to create a casual networking environment complete with high-top tables and catered food and beverages. Students are advised to dress casually, and we encourage employers to leave their retractable banners back at the office.

For virtual Pop-ins, each employer has their own breakout room and students can "pop in" to chat with one, some or all of the participating employers.
