PFP Fall Career Day FAQs for Professionals

Who will be attending Fall Career Day?
The primary attendees for Fall Career Day will include December 2020 graduates and students seeking an internship for Summer 2021. While those populations will be the main attendees, this event will be open for all Personal Financial Planning students regardless of classification or program level should they want to attend.

How do I advertise my job openings?
Open positions will be posted through University Career Center on HireRedRaiders. The HireRedRaiders platform will also be used to schedule virtual interviews via Zoom. 

What benefit do I receive as a company for attending Fall Career Day?
By attending Fall Career Day, you are getting exposure to some of the top personal financial planning students in the country. You will be able to virtual interviews and give an informational presentation to interested students. 

How much is it to attend Fall Career Day?
The cost is $150 per company. If your company was an Event or Platinum sponsor for 2020 Opportunity Days, this cost was included in your sponsorship benefits.

What are the expectations for the presentation?
Each company will have the chance to give a presentation to interested students if they wish to do so. Each company will have a 30 minute slot (subject to change) to give a presentation. We would suggest a presentation that goes over the culture of your office, the job, benefits of working at your firm, your company model, etc. We would encourage you to have a 20-minute presentation and then allow for any questions at the end.

You do not have to give a presentation if you do not want to.

Due to the number of companies in attendance, we will be very strict with your presentation time to ensure everyone has an equal amount of time.

If I am unable to attend Fall Career Day, can I do a classroom presentation or set up a separate interview day for PFP students?
Unfortunately we are no longer going to be allowing companies to present during our class time. If you would like to visit with PFP students, Fall Career Day or Opportunity Days is going to be your best option. You can also contact the President of our student FPA chapter to see if they have space at their meetings. The 2020 President is Ansleigh Brister

You are more than welcome to set up a separate interview day through the University Career Center, and we are happy to advertise your visit but we will be unable to facilitate any details for you.
