Information for students

Please join us for HCDE Career Fair 2019 and connect with a range of industry employers looking for students studying human-centered design and engineering. The fair is open to HCDE students and HCDE alumni from 4 – 6 p.m. Others across campus seeking jobs and internships in related fields are welcome to attend from 6 – 7:30 p.m. 

What to expect and how to prepare for the HCDE Career Fair:

Students are expected to dress professionally with a minimum standard of business casual attire. Bring multiple copies of your resume. Bring a portfolio if you have one—either digital or printed—although it is not necessary to attend. The event is a great opportunity to gain insight into companies interested in hiring HCDE students.

Although a few employers may invite selected candidates for follow up conversations or interviews after the event, most will require that you apply online when the roles are available.

Space will be limited in the ballroom; please leave backpacks and large bags at home. Student registration open now »
