Company presentations for fall 2018 may be scheduled through this website. The fall schedule runs from August 6 through November 16, 2018. Presentations may start no earlier than 6PM and end no later than 10PM. Company presentations may not be scheduled on MIT Holidays nor during the week of the MIT Fall Career Fair (September 17-21).
To schedule a presentation during the week of the MIT Fall Career Fair, please register for the fair at https://fcf-webmaster.squarespace.com/. After you register for the MIT Fall Career Fair, a form will be available to you on the website to request a company event. If you would like to schedule a presentation during the week of the MIT Fall Career Fair but will not be attending the fair, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Company presentations scheduled during the MIT Fall Career Fair are managed by students.
The company contact who submits a request form is responsible for informing his/her company representatives of the policies listed on this page.
Company Presentation Fee
The cost to request a company presentation is $350.00.
Please note: Requests from organizations with outstanding balances will not be confirmed until the balance is settled.
If you prefer your presentation be held in a Stata Center classroom, an additional $100 charge will be applied. Please forward your room request acknowledgement to email@example.com to make note of your preference; an updated invoice will be sent if we are able to accommodate your presentation in the MIT Stata Center.
A classroom, coordination services, and posting of the confirmed presentation date/time/location on the MIT GECD calendar are included. The cost of any auxiliary services (audio visual, furniture, etc.) ordered by the employer will be assumed by the employer and must be paid for at the time that the orders are placed. All classrooms are enabled for wireless internet access.
Please note: Classrooms and lecture halls that are reserved for company presentations are equipped with desks and/or tables and chairs which cannot be removed from the room.
How and When to Book a Presentation
Requests for company presentation rooms, along with related AV equipment and furniture rental, must be made by submitting an online request form no later than ten business days in advance of the targeted presentation date. A credit card payment will be required in order to successfully submit the request form, and an auto reply email will acknowledge that your request has been received for processing. Please note that it can take up to ten business days for schedulers to identify availability of a presentation room. Once a room is identified, you will receive an email confirmation including your room location and information about catering options. If your request cannot be confirmed, you will receive an email notification, and alternative dates can be investigated or a refund can be made in full.
On rare occasions, we may need to re-schedule or re-locate a confirmed company presentation due to other MIT activity. In these circumstances, every effort will be made to find an alternative, comparable classroom. If the presentation cannot be re-scheduled, a full refund will be issued.
Any changes to your request must be submitted in writing via email to firstname.lastname@example.org by no later than ten business days prior to the presentation. Please do not use the online form to make changes as this will result in a duplicate request. No changes will be processed via telephone.
Cancellation and Refund Policy for Company Presentations
Cancellations received in writing via email to email@example.com up to ten business days prior to the scheduled presentation are entitled to a refund less a $50 processing fee. No refunds (full or partial) will be issued within ten business days of the presentation. No refunds will be issued due to inclement weather unless MIT is closed due to severe weather conditions. Cancellations will not be accepted over the telephone. Employers who fail to send a written cancellation notice will be responsible for all costs associated with the presentation. Organizations with outstanding balances will be denied space for future presentations.
All refunds will be made in US dollars and in the form in which the original payment was submitted.
The date, time, and location of your presentation will be submitted to the MIT GECD Office for inclusion on their calendar at https://cblink.mit.edu/jobs-and-internships/career-fairs-and-company-presentations/company-presentations.
Other forms of advertising are the responsibility of the recruiter. Suggestions can be found here: http://gecd.mit.edu/employers/plan/advertise.

Choosing a Presentation Date
Fall 2018 company presentations may be scheduled on Mondays through Fridays between the hours of 6PM and 10PM. All presentations must end by 10PM. Presentations may be scheduled weekdays from August 6 through November 16, 2018. Presentations may not be scheduled on MIT Holidays nor during the week of the MIT Fall Career Fair (September 17-21).
Prior to choosing a date for your presentation, we encourage you to browse the MIT GECD calendar of Company Presentations. Booking a date that has already been heavily scheduled with presentations may impact your attendance. By coordinating the session, MIT in no way guarantees an audience.

MIT Recruiting Policies
Please note: The MIT GECD adheres to the NACE policy that states serving alcohol cannot be part of the recruitment process.
Information on on-campus caterers will be sent to you upon final confirmation of your room location. Catering requests must be made directly with the caterer. It is advised that you do not arrange for catering until your room reservation has been confirmed. Leftover catering and trash must be removed from classrooms at the end of the presentation.
Due to limited storage capacity, presentation materials, when at all possible, should be brought by employers on the evening of the presentation. If advance shipment of materials is essential, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. MIT Conference Services must be notified that materials are being shipped. Shipping instructions will be provided separately. All materials must be removed from classrooms at the end of the presentation.
Note that packages cannot be received at our office location; please do not ship to our address directly. You must email us at email@example.com for correct shipping information.
Tables for materials (or catering) are not included in the presentation fee and must be requested a minimum of ten business days in advance of your target presentation date. Some classrooms are equipped with movable tables that can be used for this purpose. We cannot guarantee the availability of this style classroom or additional tables.
