On-Campus Recruiting-Approximately 100 employers conduct over 250 interviews with our students in a typical year. There are different possibilities for each major. These interviews include positions for internships, cop-ops and permanent opportunities. Many companies still do not recruit on campus so it is suggested you explore all alternative ways for job searching.
