Students, welcome to the 2014 Fall Graduate Student Career Fair!

After Graduate School, what next? If you have ever found yourself pondering that question, we encourage you to attend Graduate Student Career Fairs.

The Spring 2015 Fair is on February 16 & 17, 2015. This career fair is specifically created to meet the needs of graduate students and employers searching for job candidates early in the Fall semester.

Location: Stewart Center 218

Graduate students are different from undergraduates! A graduate degree implies advanced knowledge, skills, and experience which will prepare us to make a difference. Our fairs reflects that difference! To help you succeed, we encourage you to:

Network!

In preparation to the upcoming fair we strongly encourage students to REGISTER in My CCO and UPLOAD your CV/RESUME. Please, also make sure that in your privacy settings you enable your CV/Resume to be included into the Resume book, which means that companies who are registered for the Career Fair will have access to your resumes and will be able to search for potential candidates in the resume book.

If you have more questions about MyCCO and how to upload your CV/resume there, please contact CCO for more information (askCCO@purdue.edu).

Research!

Learn about the companies that come to the fair (check out Company List)! Remember – graduate students are different and so is our fair. Our focus is not on you visiting 100 uninterested companies, but on making a few targeted contacts!

Work!

Finding a career is always hard, every year. This year in particular! Only you know why you should be hired, so come prepared to explain that! Good luck!
