WHO'S COMING TO EXPO?
This is the most common question about Expo and the answer is pretty
straightforward: the list of organizations is available on the Winter Career Expo
website. The trick, though, is what you do with the list. Here are some tips:
Almost 100 organizations makes for a long list! To make it more manageable
start by searching the list by "Type of Position (full-time or internship).
Don't miss out on great opportunities! Look at the organization description
and the job description. The organization description tells you what they do;
the job description tells you what they're looking for: the connection is not
For example: BrightEdge Technologies "is the global leader in enterprise
SEO, helping more than 6,000 of the world's largest brands stay ahead in the
rapidly evolving Internet landscape." At first glance you might think they're
recruiting technical majors... they are actually recruiting all majors for account
Connect the job description to your own story: your experiences, interests,
skills (the things you're good at). This will give you specific examples to use
when speaking with Expo recruiters.
Use the filters to review the list by location, degree level and more.
