SPRING 2022 EMPLOYER NETWORKING NIGHTS

Employer Networking Nights are great opportunities to meet and network with professionals! Dress code is smart casual dress. You can find specific dates/times on Handshake. Be ready to sign-up for a group or one-on-one session and don’t forget to REGISTER in advance!

 WANT AN INTERNSHIP OR JOB PART 1?:  NETWORK WITH EMPLOYERS!

 Many employers are excited and waiting to virtually meet interested students throughout the semester. Make connections, ask questions, and network to increase your chances of being noticed and hired through information sessions and Employer Networking Nights! Schedules available on Handshake. Be ready to sign-up for a group or one-on-one session and don’t forget to REGISTER in advance!

 WANT AN INTERNSHIP OR JOB PART 2?:  SUBMIT YOUR RESUME TO UCS RESUME BOOKS

 Are you a sophomore, junior, or senior looking for opportunities? Follow these steps to be included in the UCS resume books that will be shared directly with employers who are hiring. These resume books will be active throughout the semester, so if your status changes (accepted an offer or are no longer seeking) make sure to withdraw your application so your resume will no longer be included. Employers request resumes of candidates still seeking as hiring needs arise, so be sure to upload your resume as soon as possible to help maximize your hiring chances!
