LAWRENCE — More than 125 companies and agencies will attend the Fall Engineering and Computing Career Fair, set for noon to 5 p.m. Sept. 21 at the Kansas Union. Students should review the complete list of employers and study those of interest prior to arrival.
Students can gather information about a wide variety of companies, network with industry representatives, and learn about potential internship and employment opportunities. Students should dress professionally and bring multiple copies of their resume to share with prospective employers. For more on what to expect and what employers look for, watch the video from an earlier career fair.
The career fair is open to all KU students, but employers will primarily focus on making connections with students in engineering, computing and the hard sciences. The Engineering Career Center, which organizes the event, has scheduled several activities to help students prepare for the career fair. Students are also invited to attend Evening With Industry at 6 p.m. Sept. 20 in the Kansas Union Ballroom. This event is a great networking opportunity for students and employers to connect in a more relaxed setting. Students get an exclusive opportunity to interact with prospective employers in a pleasant, structured environment. Registration and payment must be made in advance. The cost is $15 for all engineering students.
