What is Employer in Residence (EIR)?
Students will have the opportunity to spend one-on-one time with participating employers asking questions about their organization/company. However, students will be able to ask OTHER career-related questions that may not directly relate to that employer's organization/company; e.g. resume critiques, interview tips, how to ask for informational interviews and other areas of interest.
What's the benefit for students and why participate?
This is YOUR time with an employer! There is no better way to gain employer insight on "awkward" questions you have about career paths, company culture, answering challenging questions without fumbling for an answer. Topics may include:
- Job Openings: Learn what opportunities are available and how to improve your chances of getting them
- Long-Term career paths in non-profit, technology, defense or construction industries
- Any other question(s) you have (and not feel embarrassed asking!)
