Logistics and parking permit will be emailed prior to the OCR visit.

Information or Info Sessions are employer-led events that are usually held in a classroom with full presentation capabilities to discuss company culture, opportunities, and recruitment and selection. Once you've registered and posted a job, use the "Events" option in Handshake and select "Info Session" to submit a request for a date/time. Students are then invited to RSVP in Handshake. Logistics and parking permit will be emailed prior to the Info Session. We require at least two weeks advanced notice for requests to adequately market to students.

Career Fairs are typically hosted in the Spring semester and all details are managed through Handshake. Students can view and RSVP to events seamlessly and any employer connected with Saddleback College in Handshake will receive invitations to register for any upcoming Career Fairs. Any other local career fair events you may be hosting separately can be promoted as well!
