Center for Career Education - This Week at CCE: Oct. 17-21, 2011
Engineers - this week is rich with opportunities for you! Non-engineers - note that you don't have to be an engineer to come to the Engineering Career Fair (Oct. 21) or Networking Reception (Oct. 20)! Companies are looking for students with a wide variety of interests including education, computer science, physics, finance, and more. Be sure to read through the employer profiles to see if there's something that interests you. Some companies indicated that they're interested in all majors!
Register for the career fair by Oct. 18th for a Fast Pass, and avoid the lines! Prepare by attending Making the Most of the Career Fair on Oct. 18 and by having your resume checked during SEAS Undergraduate Walk-Ins in Mudd (Oct. 17 & 18) or during regular Walk-In Hours at CCE.
