Engineering to Host Fall Career Fair

The School of Engineering will host its first school-wide Career Fair on Tuesday, October 28th and Wednesday, October 29th, 2008. The Tuesday event will take place in the Rome Commons Ballroom, and the Wednesday fair will be held in the Student Union Ballroom. The fair hours are noon until 4:00 p.m. both days.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for employers to meet with our very talented undergraduates, whether they are interested in seeking full-time entry-level employees, interns or co-op students,” said Dean of Engineering Mun Y. Choi.

Assistant Dean for Undergraduate Education Marty Wood agreed, adding “Our graduating seniors almost universally receive multiple job offers, and most also intern to gain valuable work experience during their undergraduate years. Our students are hard-working, creative and smart, so it’s little wonder they are sought-after.”

A highlight of both Career Fair days will be a light reception beginning at 4:15 p.m., during which attendees may network on an informal basis. A February 24th career fair is also planned to coincide with National Engineers Week activities.
