This is well suited for those ready to explore employment opportunities and learn more about our companies. Companies will come prepared to discuss their brands and promote available positions they may have. Students are required to submit a resume ahead of time that participating companies will have access to review. Students in turn will have a company profile of each participating company. The event is structured so it will allow for students to get a quick overview of 6 – 8 companies through the lightning rounds, then meet them in the networking lounge. Event concludes with coffee chats that the student has initiated with 2 companies of their choice. Join us for your chance to meet the hiring managers from great companies within our industry.
