If you have financial need and are unable to afford full-priced professional attire for the Career Fair and interviewing, there's help.
The College of Science and Engineering has partnered with Ready for Success, a local non-profit organization that provides professional attire to job/internship seekers at no cost to the student. The Career Center can secure an appointment for you with this organization.
If you are an undergraduate student enrolled in CSE and are interested, please fill out this application form. Non-CSE students, please contact your career center to see what assistance may be available. You must be a CSE undergraduate student who is actively searching for a job or internship and be able to demonstrate financial need. Appointments are very limited.
The CSE career fair is open to:
- College of Science and Engineering (CSE) students at the University of Minnesota (undergraduate and graduate)
- CSE alumni who have graduated within the past three years. You must use your UMN email address.
- Non-CSE students actively enrolled at the University of Minnesota.
- Please note: Non-CSE University of Minnesota students should be aware that employers attending the CSE Career Fair are specifically there to hire CSE students. In addition, non-CSE students may have problems applying for jobs and requesting interviews in GoldPASS.
Students and alumni from other institutions may not attend the career fair.
A great way to explore career paths, learn about companies, gain industry knowledge and connect with hiring managers is to take advantage of recruiting events happening every semester. Keep an eye on GoldPASS Powered by Handshake Events to ensure you don’t miss out on these great opportunities!
