Individually-Hosted Off-Campus Employer ReceptionsEach year many employers choose to host their own individual receptions at area restaurants off campus. The CPC does recommend employers first participate in one of the CPC-Hosted Employer Receptions as a means of generally introducing their organizations to our student body.
CPC Calendar of Possible Dates: The CPC has set up a calendar of potential dates over a period of 10 weeks for off-campus events/receptions to avoid possible conflicts and to maximize student attendance at these events. On any of these dates, an event may be scheduled for lunchtime or for the evening; therefore, there are actually two reception “time slots” available on each listed date (except as specifically noted in the list of dates below).
Off-Campus Reception Times:Please note that at Fordham Law School there are no classes scheduled on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12:30 pm to 1:50 pm, or on Wednesdays from 4:30 pm to 6:20 pm (commonly referred to as “open window periods”), except Tuesday, February 18, which will follow a Monday schedule of classes. (Note that not all students have classes at other times, and so scheduling of employer events has never been limited to those “open window” periods -- but scheduling an event during an "open window" period minimizes the chance that class conflicts will make it impossible for students to attend an event.) In addition, given that there are only three “open window” periods per week, it is common for other school organizations and departments to schedule programs/events during these “open window” periods.
LOTTERY: The CPC will conduct a lottery of interested employers to determine which employers will host off-campus events on each of the available dates.
The specific available dates and times during the Spring 2014 semester are as follows:
Thursday, January 16 (evening only)
Deadline to enter lottery: Employers interested in participating in this lottery should send an email to the Career Planning Center (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 1:00 pm on Wednesday, December 4, 2013, indicating their choices of reception dates from among those on the provided list.
In order to avoid possible conflicts, we ask that each employer provide as many choices as possible, with a minimum of five choices ranked in order of preference, and indicate for each date whether a lunchtime reception or an evening reception is desired (depending, of course, on the availability of time slots on the chosen dates as set forth in the table above.
All employers will receive an email by 5:00 pm on Monday, December 9, 2013, informing them which reception date and slot they were assigned.
MARKETING YOUR EVENT:There are two methods available for marketing your event to students:
VENUES: The CPC has identified off-campus establishments in the vicinity of the Fordham Law School campus that may be good venues for employers wishing to host an individual reception.
