On Friday, May 1st, the CS department hosted its first career fair. The fair featured 18 companies–all with Montana offices. Although most companies were recruiting for full-time positions, we invited companies with an emphasis on paid internships and part-time work for CS students to enable CS students to leverage their ability to earn CS-skill wages starting their freshman year.
More than 50 students from 15 majors attended. Each of the corporate representatives said they met several interesting candidates for their available positions.
We expect an even bigger turnout for next year’s career fair, which will probably be in the fall.
