Alfred University's 2016 Engineering Fair

Alfred University's 2016 Engineering Fair

Alfred University’s Career Development Center will host the annual Engineering Career Fair on Thursday, Oct. 5, from 11 am - 3 pm in the Joyce and Walton Center for Health and Wellness, located next to the McLane Center on the Alfred University campus.

This event is open to students, alumni, and community members, free of charge. Those planning to attend are advised to wear professional dress, and to bring several copies of their resume.  The companies represented will be recruiting for internships, co-op, and permanent positions for college-educated candidates. The growing electronic directory of employers is located on Handshake (https://alfred.joinhandsh...).

The Engineering Career Fair is being co-sponsored by Owens-Illinois, Corning Incorporated, Samtec, Kohler Co., Unifrax  LLC, and the Collegiate Restaurant. Candidates will be able to meet with representatives from these companies along with more than 30 other companies that will be represented.

A representative of one of the companies attending the 2016 Engineering Career Fair said the “best thing” about the fair was “the preparation of the students. Each student was dressed professionally. They'd done their homework and asked great questions. They were really engaging.”

To promote an even higher level of networking and recruitment, an invitation-only networking reception will take place after the fair from 4:30-6 pm in the McMahon Engineering Building. Employers who select the networking opportunity, as well as faculty, staff and administration will be present, along with participants who receive a “golden ticket” invitation to attend.

A number of employers plan to stay to conduct interviews for their open positions on Friday, Oct.  6. Interviews will be scheduled during the career fair and networking reception, and will take place throughout campus in designated interview spaces.
