School recruitment committees may begin to reach out to candidates in the FAR as soon as the first distribution is made available to them on August 21. If you submit your FAR profile and payment in time for the first distribution, you will be invited to attend a series of virtual events in August designed to help you brush up on your interviewing skills and deliver your best throughout the hiring season.

The links to register for these events will be emailed to FAR registrants after the August 13 FAR submission deadline.
