Registration Details to Know
All recruiters registering for the 2023 Showcase must create a new account because we have a new registration system. Georgia Tech recruiters cannot use their Tech credentials to access the registration system because it is separate from the single sign-on system (SSO).
- Only one registration per program is required per session. If separate program listings and meeting links are desired, you must register separately. For example, if you represent an Economics program and a colleague represents a separate International Affairs program, you each need to register. However, if you represent a combined program called Economics & International Affairs and want to bring a colleague, you only need one registration.
- If you represent an entire office such as “Graduate Education” or “College of Engineering,” you only need one registration and can have multiple recruiters from different programs in the same session. If you want each program to have their own session with their own meeting links, you will need to have each recruiter from each program register.
- All program recruiters can use their virtual platform of choice.
- Please take into consideration the participant capacity of your virtual meeting spaces. We will provide information at a later date about effective practices for setting up virtual meetings.
- All events must be live/in real time. A recruiter is expected to be present for the event time(s) you register for.
Registration Login & Changes
The details related to your program will be posted on the event website directly from your registration entries. We do not check that meeting links, websites, etc. are correct and valid but will let you know once your information is posted on the Showcase site. If you realize you need to make a change, you will be able to do this through the account you created to register. You will receive a notification email after changes are made.
Existing 2023 account login page (to make changes to your2023 registration entries):
Direct changes to registration entries can be made until October 4. We will request verification of your details between October 5 – 12. After that time, change requests will need to be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The link to the existing account login will be provided in the confirmation email you should receive after you register.
Lists of Prospective Students
By finalizing recruiter registration before prospective student registration begins, we will be able to send all registered recruiters multiple updates about prospective students who have registered. This will enable your program to market directly to those who have registered. Prospective student registration will be September 27 – October 18, 2023. You can also invite any current prospective students you may have to the Showcase as well.
We will send you marketing assets for you to promote your participation in the Showcase and to invite your university’s own undergraduates to attend as well as for your program website. You may also use the assets to encourage prospective students from your own databases to attend.
During your session(s), a Showcase Ambassador may pop in to say hello to see if you need any assistance. Our goal is to have an ambassador check in with every recruiter at the event.
The 2023 Virtual Graduate School Showcase is hosted by the Georgia Tech Office of Graduate Education and Georgia Tech Pre-Graduate & Pre-Professional Advising. If you have questions, please contact us at email@example.com.
