[Employers look for top job prospects at the career fair]

School of Engineering students have an opportunity to find employment they can fall in love with.

The Spring Engineering and Computer Science Career Fair will be from 12:30 p.m. to 5 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 14, on the fifth floor of the Kansas Memorial Union.

More than 80 employers looking for students with a technical background have already registered to attend. Coordinators in the Engineering Career Center, 1001 Eaton Hall, expect as many as 100 firms and agencies will have registered before the event gets under way. Visit the

ECC Web site

for a complete list of attendees, and the majors they are hiring. Employers will look for students to fill internship positions as well as full-time, permanent positions.

[Competition for the best jobs and internships can be intense]

All students at all academic levels are encouraged to attend. Career fairs are an important way for students to learn about potential employers as they build important conversational skills.

Professional attire — suit, shirt and tie for men, suit or pantsuit for women — is strongly recommended. Students also should come prepared with printed copies of their resume.

Engineering Career Center offers several workshops, personalized services and tips to help students make the best impression at the career fair. Go to the office, 1001 Eaton Hall, or visit the

ECC Web site.
