Career Networking Event for Computer Science and Math Majors- Sponsored By The Faculty of Science

 

Where: The Landing, Memorial University (UC 3018)

When: November.29th, 2017

Time: 12pm-2pm

Science students/ graduates will have an opportunity to practice pitching their skills and experiences to employers and industry professionals from various organizations and learn about careers in the science field. During the event, groups of students/graduates and participating employers/industry professionals will be matched up at tables and become acquainted. The industry professionals will move to another table approximately every 7 minutes until all individuals have met.

There will be time left during the end of the event for students and employers/ industry professionals to continue networking and exchange business cards/ contact information if desired.

Since many jobs are not publicly advertised, networking is a major way that students and graduates find jobs and careers in the hidden job market! Come, network and get informed!

Please note: Although this Science Career Networking event involves science careers focused on computer science and mathematics, many of the organizations recruit for various backgrounds, hence, students from other disciplines are welcome to attend!
