Hi,

Please disregard the other reply.

What's your objective?

I recommend the following steps:

  1. Ask the smart questions and try to have a conversation
  2. Write a thank you note. The content of the Thank You note depends on the objective. Write smth like:
  • "I just wanted to thank you for visiting our University...
  • It was especially interesting to hear about...
  • At the meeting, you've mentioned... Would you mind having a short call to discuss?

Hi Vlad. Thank you for your comment. My objective was to do some sort of effective networking. I have been looking up the company's potential representatives at my university and read some of the articles they published and the projects they worked on. Would those be good/acceptable topics to discuss during the information session? It's a pre-hiring session so I am trying to leave a good impression and get the most out of the session. — Omar on Mar 08, 2019

Seem genuiely interested, do a background check on the representatives (Linkedin), and research the recent projects the company has done, and bring those topics up when talking with reprensentatives to distinguish yourself from others
