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.”

The exhibitor fee is just $250 for a display space, which includes a skirted table, validated (free) parking, and beverages and snacks during the event. A light reception each day, beginning at 4:15 p.m., will afford participants informal networking opportunities. A February 24th career fair is also planned to coincide with National Engineers Week activities.
