Serendipitous Events give you the flexibility and freedom to move from room to room at your own leisure giving the feel of in-person career fairs/meet and greets. As a student, you will be able to meet with employers in a relaxed and intimate environment where you have control over which firms you meet with and how long you spend in each room. This article will walk you step by step through the registration process and what to expect when joining an event.

Registration Process

The law school will send you an invite outside of Flo Recruit to provide details about the event as well as the registration link.

Step 1:

The registration link will take you to a form that provides the event details and a field to enter your email address. Immediately an email will be sent to you to confirm your email address as well as a link to complete registration.

Step 2:

Click on the registration link you received in the email and enter your first and last name.

There are also optional fields for your phone number, LinkedIn URL, and a headshot.

Step 3:

The school may ask for you to upload documents such as a resume or transcript. If documents have been requested you would be taken to the Documents page after you click the continue button.

After you complete the documents section this will complete your registration.

Step 4:

You will immediately receive a registration confirmation email after completing the registration. This email will confirm the event details and will also include the link to join the event through. Note: Some law schools will not have this registration confirmation email turned on so if you do not receive an email immediately you will receive an event reminder email closer to the day of the event that will include this information.

Step 5:

When it is time to join the event you will click on the link in the event email. You will be able to see the names of the rooms and be able to join the room of your choice.

Each room has a max capacity and if a room is full it will show this in the lower right corner of the room information box.

Step 6:

Like with other Flo event types you will be able to check your camera and mic before entering the room.

You will also be able to select a virtual background or the option to blur your background.

Step 7:

Once in the room, it will look almost identical to other Flo event meeting rooms. The big difference is that on the left panel you will have the ability to see the other attendees who are in the room. You can see who is with the firm and who the other students are.

Contact information for the members of the firms will be available and can be viewed before, during, and after the event.

You can also click the Room icon at the top of the page so you can view the other rooms as well as which rooms have open spots available without having to go back to the lobby.

You will be able to join any room with an open spot from the side panel. When you click the join room button it will not throw you directly into the new room but will give you the ability to check your camera and mic before you go in.

Step 8:

Five minutes prior to the end time of the event a warning will be displayed in the bottom right corner to serve as a warning that the event is coming to an end. You can click the Okay button to dismiss the warning.

When the event end time passes you will not be removed from the event automatically and will be able to wrap up your conversations.
