Technology and Analytics – Upcoming Events, Opportunities and Resources

Hello Hoyas!

The Annual Career Fair is just over a week away, taking place on Friday, September 8, 1-4pm. Employers in the technology industry or hiring tech roles registered thus far include Berkley Research Group, Deloitte, Ignyte Group, Leidos, NSA, Defense Intelligence Agency, Epic, FTI Consulting, EY, IFC, GU and Institute for International Education, but as a reminder, most organizations seek to hire students with tech skills.

So, how do you get prepared? Here are some resources to help you.

  • Attend a drop-in to ask a question or practice your elevator pitch! Drop-ins are open and available for all class years. Hours are Monday-Thursday, 1-3 pm, in person. On Friday, drop-ins are virtual from 10-12 pm.
  • Read my favourite article on career fairs, What Recruiters Wish You Knew About Career Fairs.
  • Are you feeling uncertain about what to ask recruiters after you give your 30-second elevator pitch? The article below offers a great sampling of questions to consider.

P.S. Appointments are available for sophomores through seniors, and first-year students will have access Monday, Oct 2. Go to the “Career Center” in Handshake to schedule an appointment.

All the best,

Assistant Director, Employer Relations and Industry Advising | Health, Science, and Technology
