Making plans for spring? Add these 3 events to your calendar!

Ready to connect with alumni & recruiters? Below are in-person events that you won’t want to miss.
CES advisors can be helpful regardless of how “ready” you’re feeling. Schedule an appointment to chat!

What: Get Hired! Job & Internship Fair

When & Where: Thursday, Feb. 15, 4–6 p.m. in the WSC Rotunda
Why attend? Meet recruiters who are hiring* Loggers for local and national internships or entry-level jobs.
How to prepare? Update your resume & LinkedIn profile. Practice your elevator speech. Take a look at the attendee list once it’s live on Handshake. Maybe meet with a CES advisor to discuss strategy.

*Not currently looking to get hired? Use this as practice for interacting with recruiters while there’s no stress to land a gig.

Tip from a Logger who’s been there/done that: “If you’re nervous, start by talking to the CES advisors. They always have suggestions for organizations to check out! The recruiters are really friendly, though. With each handshake, you’ll feel more confident!”

What: Summer Opportunities Fair

When & Where: Wednesday, March 20, 11:30 a.m.–1:30 p.m. in the Piano Lounge (Diversions lobby)
Why attend? Learn about summer jobs, internships, volunteer opps, etc.
How to prepare? No preparation needed. Drop by and say hello to organizations that pique your interest.

From a Logger who’s been there/done that: “I learned about lots of ways to gain experience and have a memorable summer.”

What: Dinner with Strangers

When & Where: Wednesday, April 3, 6–8 p.m. in the Tahoma Room (RSVP required)
Why attend? Hear advice, swap stories, and practice your networking skills with alumni & faculty — while enjoying a free meal.
How to prepare? Seats are limited for this popular event. RSVP as soon as registration goes live!

From a Logger who’s been there/done that: “The alumni I spoke to were very enthusiastic about offering support to students, which I found reassuring and really cool. Talking to alums helps you see that even people settled in their careers are not “at the destination” — everyone is still on a journey.”
