Engineering Job Fair

The Engineering Career Fair will be an amazing opportunity for students to network and meet with 100+ organizations recruiting for internships, co-ops and full-time positions.  Many companies are making hiring decisions this fall for Spring/Summer 2018 hires and we want Engineering@Iowa students to be competitive and successful within their search process. 

It is very importance to dress professionally at the Engineering Career Fair and to research attending companies. More information including the company directory is available through the career development website www.engineering.uiowa.edu/epd.
