FAQs & Information for Interviewing Companies at Student Summit 2020

Common FAQs

How many students will attend the event total?

We usually expect about 170-190. Total attendance will be about 230-250 including advisors and company representatives.

How many people can I send from my company?

The Interview and Career Fair sponsorship includes two complimentary exhibitor registrations. If you send more than two representatives, each additional company representative can attend for $150 per person.

How many interview booths do we get?

Each company receives one complete interview booth (10x10) included in the Interview & Career Fair Package. This includes one table and three chairs for the company representatives and the interviewee. Additional interview booths can be purchased for $500 each and are sold on a first-come, first-served basis, based on availability. Please contact Lisa Lockwood ([email protected]) prior to the event if you'd like to purchase additional interview booths so that we can accommodate your needs. See TAPPI Registration for purchasing additional booths onsite.

Where and when are the interviews going to be held?

The interviews will be held at the hotel in Norcross and Peachtree Corners rooms (depending on where your company is assigned). 

You may schedule interviews between the following times:
Friday: 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Saturday: 8:00 am - 4:00 pm
Sunday: 8:00 am - 7:00 pm

How will the interview process work on-site?

Students will be briefed on where the interviews are being held and what the procedure is. When students arrive at your prescheduled interview time, they will wait outside the interview rooms. When your company representatives are ready for them, you will retrieve them from the reception area just outside the room and show them to your assigned booth. Students are not allowed to wander freely in the area to their interview. They will only arrive prior to their interview time and should vacate the area once their interview is over.

Where can I get the resumes of students attending Student Summit?

Once you have committed to interviewing students at the event as an Interview and Career Fair sponsor, you will be sent a username and password to view the resumes online. It is your responsibility to contact students and schedule interviews ahead of time to take place during the Summit. 

Can our company representatives attend sessions?

Sponsoring company representatives may attend any of the sessions during Student Summit, with the possible exception of the mill tour (TBD). If any of your company attendees would like to participate as a roundtable moderator or panelist, please contact Lisa Lockwood ([email protected]).

Tabletop FAQs

How many tabletops does my company get in the Networking and Career Fair area?

Each company receives one tabletop (one 8ft table) in the exhibit area. There will be space for company handouts, pullups, or tabletop display. The Networking & Career Fair will be held in this area. It is ideal that companies bring enough items for your table and any handouts to give away.

When can I set up my tabletop?

You may set up as early as noon on Friday.

Where can I ship my display items?

You may ship any items directly to the host hotel. Please ensure that no items arrive before Wednesday, January 15th, 2020. Below is the address:

Hilton Atlanta Northeast
5993 Peachtree Industrial Blvd.
