Message Center

Candidates and employers communicate with each other through the mailboxes at the Message Center, located in Ballroom C in the Holiday Inn and Fogelman Executive Center University of Memphis. Candidates and employers are assigned Southern Placement Exchange box numbers, which correspond to the mailboxes in the Message Center. The employer mailboxes will be accessible through Placement Exchange personnel. Candidates should deliver mail to the employer section in the Message Center and Placement Exchange personnel will sort it into the appropriate box.  Employers will be given their mail upon request.

Employers should sort and deliver mail to the candidate mailboxes.  Candidates will pick up their own mail.  Do not hesitate to ask Message Center personnel for assistance.  They are there to help you!

Be sure to use your name and mailbox number on all correspondence.  Address your mail carefully.  Improperly addressed mail can cause needless delays and anxiety.

When addressing a message to an employer, make sure that you use the employer mailbox number.  While employers may occupy multiple tables, they have only one mailbox number.  Check the listings for the correct mailbox number.

Please note: Interview tables and/or suites do not correspond to the Message Center Mailboxes. Prior to departing the Placement Exchange, candidates and employers should ask the Message Center staff to close out your mailbox. This will help candidates and employers know that any further correspondence or information should be sent to you directly.

Message forms are provided for candidates and employers and are available in various locations throughout the Holiday Inn and Fogelman Executive Center University of Memphis.  These forms will also be available on the Southern Placement Exchange web page for you to customize, print, copy and bring with you to the placement exchange, if desired.
