Important Information for Students

Due to the large level of interest, the CS Career and Internship Fair is only open to the majors listed at the bottom of the page and CS Alumni. 

*Important – You will need to upload your resume to careers4terps in advance to gain admittance to the fair.*

Before You Go To The Event

Read about the companies that will participate. This information can be found on the Career Fair website on the student page. There will be Tech Giants, Startups, Government Organizations, Fortune 500 companies, and Financial Institutions present at the Career Fair.

Review your resume and be prepared to be asked questions pertaining to it as well as to answer technical questions. Recruiters will have access to your resume and will write notes.

Be prepared to talk about yourself. Think about interesting projects that you have worked on outside of class, and review the classes that you have taken. Recruiters want to know about your interests, accomplishments and your goals and how you might fit into their company. Be confident in your abilities.

Dress

We encourage students to dress in a business casual attire​. 

Event Information

The fair will begin at 3pm and end at 8pm. The Department and Career Services will also be offering help and tips for making the virtual career fair the best it can be for you. 

Tips: Take notes and make sure you take the recruiter contact information. Have a good time, and make sure that you meet people from many different companies and organizations. Sometimes, you can discover a place to work or intern that you had previously not considered. After the event, make sure that you check your email (and spam folder) as well as your voicemail after the fair in case a recruiter wants to set up an interview with you. The interview process can be long and arduous—if you don’t get a phone call or email right away, do not panic.
