2018 Fall Engineering Career Fair
New this fall: Two career fair dates to offer employers more flexibility!

Both fairs will be a mix of all engineering majors, so choose the date that works best for you!  Our students research the companies that come to campus, and they will visit your booth regardless of the day you choose when they find your employment opportunities interesting.

Registration is now open through CyHire

September 18th

Location:  Scheman Building

Time:  12:00 to 5:00p

Location of On-Campus Interviewing on the 19th: Scheman Building*

Time: 12:00 to 5:00p

Location of On-Campus Interviewing on the 26th:    Lied Recreation Center*

Please give students at least three weeks to consider employment offers so they can participate in both career fairs and complete resulting interviews. This policy ensures fairness to employers attending the second fair and helps to keep the propensity for reneging very low at ISU.
