Network and Interview in NYC, DC, Boston and LA this winter break!

The Career Center is pleased to announce Career and Internship Connections (CICs) 2016!

What are the Career and Internship Connections (CICs)?

CICs are career fair and interview days in NYC, DC, Boston, and Los Angeles held over the January break.  The events have a morning career fair and afternoon interviews (that you apply for AHEAD of time – by 11/30/15).

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.


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!


Every year UR students:
  • Submit the most job applications
  • Get the most interview offers, and
  • Pick up the most add-on interviews at the events!

This is because not only are you great candidates, but our Career Center runs these events from employer registration through interview processing! Based on last year’s data, the BEST way to snag an interview is to apply by the November 30th deadline.
