You will receive and invitation to participate in this networking event with employers recruiting full time entry-level engineers and computer scientists. Participation is free, but you must register and put down a deposit (which will be refunded when you arrive at the event). The student registration for this event will go live at the beginning of the fall semester.
Career Fair Prep and Networking Events
This Event takes place once a semester a week or two before the career fair. Have an employer critique your resume or give you a quick mock interview. No need to dress up, just stop by in between classes. The Fall date will be Friday, September 9, 2016, 10 am to 2 pm. Employers who would like to volunteer their time for this event can e-mail Marsha Phillips to let her know, or use our registration form.
Employer Information Tables:
Every Wednesday during the semester from 10:00 am-2:00 pm, Ralph G. Anderson Atrium – meet employers who are on campus to discuss your resume, their recruiting needs or the engineering professions with you. Every Wednesday, we will have 1-3 employers on hand to answer questions about careers in their company for you.
Career Fair Prep Seminars:
Learn how to do your homework on career fairs and how to best work it! Participation in one of these seminars, as well as a resume review (through career counselors on campus or at Resumania), will allow you to become a Career Fair VIP, giving you access to the fair half an hour before the general student population is admitted. This is valuable time with employers with short or no lines, so don’t miss out! Both the Gatton College of Business and the College of Engineering are offering the same seminar, so pick a time that works for you and stop by. Fall Dates will be announced this summer.
