Fall 2017 Career Days

September 14th, 2017 Comments Off on Fall 2017 Career Days

Fall 2017 Career Days are next week!

  • Tuesday, September 19, 2017 – Non-Technical Majors
  • Wednesday, September 20, 2017 – Technical Majors (CAAD and Engineering)

Both days will be held at the Humphrey Coliseum, 12 noon-4 p.m.

Although CAAD employers typically attend and recruit during the Spring Career Days, we do have employers who are recruiting CAAD majors this semester. There are also employers attending who hire all majors.

There are currently 181 employers attending! This event is a great opportunity for you to gain exposure and get a sense for what to expect at Spring 2018 Career Days, when you can expect over a dozen CAAD recruiters.

The lists of attending employers for Fall 2017 are attached or you can see below. 

You can also view the list, including additions after today, in Connections under the “Events” tab. Use the advanced search function to filter the list by major and position type. While there, students should make sure their Connections profile information is up to date as we will print a nametag at Career Days using that information.
