CBAT@Work Networking Career Social
DEI Panel/Networking Career Fair Social is the major recruiting event for the fall semester. Different from a traditional career fair, the DEI Panel/Networking Career Fair Social facilitates student and employer networking through a conference social environment. Typically, an alumni panel comprised of recent graduates from the college will share information about their professional journeys, key learning points from their first year on the job, critical skills, and general advice to current students.
Following the panel discussion, students and employers congregate—and network!—in three major zones: business, computing/digital media, and engineering/engineering technology/surveying.
The virtue of this format is that employers do not have to bring displays, giveaways, or other items. However, a table will be placed in each zone for any employers who want to share an internship/co-op or full-time job description or a company overview. Other than that, employers simply bring themselves. Won’t you join us?
