If you’ve been following the Career Services Twitter account or the #2014SciEngFair hashtag, you already know this year’s Science and Engineering Career Fair went off with a bang.

More than 4,000 students packed the upper level Jack Simpson Gym on Sept. 23 to engage with 126 visiting employers, student clubs and campus organizations. Attendees met with numerous exhibitors who were sharing career opportunities in oil and gas, innovative technology development, and city planning.

Students were able to learn and use their networking skills and show off their resumes to peer helpers and the Career Services team responsible for hosting the event.

Whether you’re a first-year undergraduate student or a graduate student, keeping your career search in mind can be the difference that helps you land that dream job.

For those who didn't make it to the career fair, Resume Rescue sessions are available by drop-in or appointment and the Career Services team can coach you through the best ways to research and prepare for your target employer, how to make a great impression and follow up.
