Why should I go?Many of these employers will not be traveling to our campus, but will be happy to meet with you in their local city. These events are an excellent opportunity to network and interview face-to-face with prospective internship and full-time employers.
INTERNSHIPS AND FULL-TIME JOBS!!!CIC events allows students to network and interview with companies in New York, Washington DC, Boston, Los Angeles! This is the 17th year of the consortium events (it includes 17 other schools). Last year's events boasted over 350+ employers and more than 500 job and internship postings!
