When: Wednesday, February 22, 2017

Time: 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM

Where: Yeh Student Center in Newmark Lab

The CEE Student Committee at the University of Illinois would like to invite you to an informal networking event on Wednesday, February 22, 2017.  Last Fall this event was a huge success by attracting over 200 students and 15 companies. The event will provide an opportunity for current CEE students to gain insight from recruiters and engineering professionals about which talents and qualities companies’ desire in prospective employees. This event will serve as an informal platform for companies to share insights into the recruiting process. More details regarding parking, companies attendance, and maps around campus will be updated after the start of the Spring 2016 semester.

Agenda for the Spring 2017 Networking Event:

6:40-7:10 PM – Information Session 1

7:20-7:50 PM – Information Session 2

8:00-8:30 PM – Informal Dinner/Meet and Greet

Complimentary food will be served during the Meet and Greet Dinner.

The event will consist of two thirty-minute sessions. Each company will be assigned two informational sessions lasting thirty minutes.  The third portion will be a meet and greet dinner.

The information sessions will consist of a brief introduction from a CEE Student Liaison.  The information sessions will allow the company representative to inform students about the company, their work, and any experiences related to the job, or career advice that you can give. The sessions will also provide students an opportunity to ask any questions they may have.

CEE Student Liaison – Each company will be assigned a CEE student who will assist them during the evening.  This student will guide all company representatives to their room and help them with any special requests or needs.   The liaison will also inform representatives if their session begins running over the 30 minutes, to assist with keeping the event on time and moving.

The Meet and Greet Dinner is an informal way for students and companies to interact while enjoying some food.
