Career Fair Crash Course Ten days before the College of Engineering hosted their career expo, UTEC hosted a Career Expo Crash Course with the help of SSOE. The event saw around 70 students attend and lasted for about an hour total. Four professionals from SSOE put on the presentation that start with a brief talk about what SSOE is about. Then the event talked about different ways to talk to engineers from the different companies at the Expo. The SSOE staff also talked about what different paths there are for engineers to take and what someone would do on co-op at these different companies. The event was followed up by some great questions by students about what they can do to stand out when interviewing with companies. Career Fair Crash Course Image
