Answers
  1. What is the Civil Engineering Career Fair?
  2. The Civil Engineering Career Fair is put on each Fall by CESAC (typically in early October). The Civil Engineering Career Fair provides students with an opportunity to talk with a wide variety of companies whose work is focused primarily within Civil Engineering. Students also have the opportunity to distribute resumes and make company contacts. It's a great opportunity for students to find internships, co-ops, and full-time positions! Companies will also find the Civil Engineering Career Fair to be an excellent opportunity to recruit Civil Engineering and Construction Engineering Management students from Purdue.

  22. Information sessions provide companies with an opportunity to get basic information out to interested students. They are held the evening before the Career Fair and help students get an idea of what your company does, where it is located, and what kind of jobs the company might offer. It is a great way to get your name out to students (based on past experience, holding an information session the night before the Career Fair helps increase student traffic to your table during the Career Fair)!
