CBAT@Work Networking Career Social
CBAT@Work Networking Career Social is the major recruiting event for the fall semester.
Different from a traditional career fair, CBAT@Work facilitates student and employer
networking through a conference social environment. Typically, an alumni panel comprised
of recent graduates from the college will share information about their professional
journeys, key learning points from their first year on the job, critical skills, and
general advice to current students.
Following the panel discussion, students and employers congregate—and network!—in three major zones: business, computing/digital media, and engineering/engineering technology/surveying. Appetizers will be served.
The virtue of this format is that employers do not have to bring displays, giveaways, or other items. However, a table will be placed in each zone for any employers who want to share an internship/co-op or full-time job description or a company overview. Other than that, employers simply bring themselves. Won’t you join us?
