School of EECS Day Networking Reception

September 14, 2021
2:00–5:00 p.m. (ET)
via Brazen Careers

This virtual reception provides an opportunity for students to network with employers seeking School of EECS majors for internship, co-op, and entry-level full-time jobs. All CMPSC, CMPEN, CSE, Data Science, and EE majors are welcome. There is no fee for students to participate.

Suggested Attire

Business professional attire is recommended. Since the event is virtual, what you wear above the waist is more important than what you wear below.

Tips for Success

  • Ensure that you know how to use Brazen Careers before the event.
  • Research participating employers of interest by looking at their websites and social media.
  • Position yourself in front of a plain, non-distracting background (a blank wall is best). If you use a virtual background, choose something simple and professional.
  • Leave your video camera on throughout your time at the event.
  • Prepare and practice a 30-second introduction—also known as an elevator pitch—including your name, professional interests and goals, and reasons for interest in the particular employer. Maintain eye contact and remember to smile!
  • Answer employer questions to the best of your ability. Don't ramble.
  • Ask questions about the company or organization to indicate your interest.
  • Take notes during your discussions. Keep a record of who you talked to and what you talked about.
