WHY SHOULD YOU ATTEND?
Company Spotlights are a chance to learn about organizations and available job or internship openings. They are a great place to network with company recruiters and make connections that can open the door to your future career. This semester, our Company Spotlights will be held both virtually and in person. You can learn more using the calendar on this website or by keeping an eye on your inbox and the Bryan School’s social media channels.
WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?
Company Spotlights last about 45 minutes. The first half will consist of a company presentation with the remaining portion designated for networking. You will have a chance to get face time with company representatives and ask questions about them and their respective organizations.
The Spotlight series is a great way to get your career started!

First impressions matter
This is a networking opportunity! Make a great first impression by doing the following:
- Dress professionally
- If virtual, keep your background (whether real or an image) simple and uncluttered
- Turn fans off and/or move anything that could be distracting
- You can download a UNCG-themed background here
- Make sure there is good light on your face, and don’t sit with a bright window behind you
- Raise your webcam so it is level with your face and bring it close
Do your research
Research the organization ahead of time so that you can show your knowledge of the industry and your enthusiasm for the company.
