Held each fall term, the Engineering Career Fair is for engineering and computer science students and alumni seeking a full-time job,internship, co-op or part-time experience in the field of engineering.  A job fair is an opportunity for you to present yourself professionally in person to a potential employer, while showcasing your communication skills.  The keys to a successful job fair experience are preparation and follow up. Here is a checklist to help you get prepared:

  • Research the list of participating employers through Handshake
  • Attend the Preparing for the Job & Internship Fair Seminar (watch emails for dates/times)
  • Get your resume reviewed  (watch emails for dates/times)
  • Prepare your 30 second introduction
  • Make sure you have a suit, padfolio, and copies of your resume!

Don't forget to ask for business cards at the job fair so you can follow up with thank-you notes.

A list of companies is on Handshake to help you prepare for the event. Please keep in mind that we will not have the detailed employer list printed at the event, so please make sure to print your own copy or save it to your computer/phone. 

Students in student organizations need to speak with their org leaders to gain "Early Access" passes.
