Fall 2013 CSRC Career Fair

Publish Date: 11/15/2013

On Monday, September 16, the Computer Science Resources Consortium had its fall luncheon and Career Fair. This fall's career fair, held in the Commonwealth Ballroom of the Squires Student Center, was the largest since the dot.com boom, with 84 companies attending. For the fall 2013 semester, the CSRC welcomed 13 new companies and institutes: Analysis, Computing, and Engineering Solutions, Appian, AT&T, AT Corp, Facebook, Interactive Achievement, JPI, Ocean’s Edge, Praxis Engineering, Technology Management Associates, Telarix, Tenable Network Security, and Vizuri. The CSRC also welcomed back Sapient and Deutsche Bank.

The members of the CSRC were on campus to learn more about the department and to recruit students as full-time employees, interns, and cooperative education students. CSRC companies provide support for CS student organizations and student scholarships.

Attending the luncheon in Owens Banquet Hall were 100+ company representatives, CS faculty and undergraduate scholarship winners. Sixty undergraduates were recognized for receiving scholarships for the 2013/14 academic year.  The majority of these funds were provided by the College of Engineering, with CGI, the Department of Computer Science, the CSRC Sotera Defense Solutions, and SWIFT contributing to the total. 

CSRC members had the opportunity to visit several classes and speak with Computer Science students to discuss how to prepare for career fairs and interviews, the variety of opportunities in the field, and the abundance of jobs available to CS majors. 

With the number and variety of positions offered by our CSRC partners, it is definitely a great time to be a CS major!
