BOSTON CAREER FORUM 2023
November 17th (Fri.) - 19th (Sun.), 2023
Let’s look into how participants and companies did last year!
The key to landing an offer through the Boston Career Forum is preparation. Companies do hold interviews
during the event. But by applying online before the event, companies can begin the process earlier and may
conduct several rounds of interviews before the event. Let’s see what past participants did before the Career
Purpose for Participating

The day of the Career Forums is your chance to talk directly with the companies. How do you approach companies
that you have applied to / not applied to? Let’s check how many companies past participants were able to visit
and the chances of receiving an offer!
Did you visit companies you did not receive any reply from?
How many companies did you visit?
How many companies did you visit that you didn't apply to beforehand?
Did you receive an offer?

When companies hold dinners/reception with candidates
＊About 75% of participating companies hold dinners/receptions with candidates. Dinners may be a small group
with 2-3 company representatives and 4-5 candidates. Some companies may hold receptions with up to 100 people.
This is an opportunity to get to know companies in a more relaxed atmosphere unlike an interview room.
However, do remember that this is still part of the recruitment process! Employers want to know more about you
as well see how you communicate with others candidates. This can give them a better picture of how you would
be as a potential employee.
