One of the best ways employers can get involved on campus is by participating in on-campus events or hosting events for our students on-site at individual companies. There are many event opportunities for employers on campus throughout the academic school year.
Each year the College of Engineering hosts two to four career fairs to promote internship, co-op and full-time opportunities for our engineering students. The career fairs range in size and scope and have varying pricing depending on the event.
Our largest career fair is typically held in the Fall of each year, with our 2016 Fall Career Fair scheduled for Oct. 6, 2016. Last year our fall career fair featured approximately 80 employers and more than 900 College of Engineering students and alumni. This year's Engineering Career Fair is October 2, 2017.
If you're interested in learning more about upcoming career fairs please add your company contact information to this online form.
Information sessions hosted on campus are a great way for a company to share their brand and company needs with engineering and computer science students. We can facilitate information sessions for employers in our newly renovated Ford Activity Center room located in the College of Engineering. Information sessions are free for employers to host, but some employers do choose to provide pizza or light refreshments for students as an added bonus.
If your hiring needs fall outside of the timing of our career fairs we can provide a recruiting table or room in the College of Engineering during peak "travel" times for students and will advertise your company's presence in advance to students. This allows employers an opportunity to recruit for engineering positions at a date that is convenient for them.
Professional development workshops
Our Career Services team works hard to provide professional development workshops for students, but we know that the best professional development insights come from industry directly. We always welcome companies to come to campus to host professional development seminars for our students and alumni. We've had employers present workshops on topics such as resume writing, STAR interviewing, working with recruiters, navigating corporate culture and many other topics. We are always welcome to hearing new ideas.
Have an idea for a career-related workshop or event?
We'd love to hear it. Please contact Sondra Auerbach.
