Frequently Asked Questions

We recommend employers schedule an Argos Meet the Pros 3-4 weeks in advance, at minimum, to optimize marketing to students prior to your campus visit.

A late fee will be charged for payments not received by midnight (CT) on the day of the event. Registration fees for career fairs and events (including late fees, if applicable) are due no later than two weeks after registration. If payment is not received within 14 days post-career fair or event, the company will not be allowed to attend future career fairs and events, and Handshake access will be disabled until the balance is paid in full. Once the balance has been paid in full, the company will be required to pay for future career fairs and events in full no more than 5 days after registering.

If you will be visiting Pensacola to recruit, there are numerous hotels in the area that you may be interested in visiting. Visit Pensacola is a great resource to assist those visiting Pensacola and surrounding areas with an extensive list of accommodations, restaurants and community events.
