Student Experience: “It was my first time going to Expo as a recruiting student, and this workshop was a useful refresher of tips and information I’ve heard before all put into one. They also had a panel of recruiters come and speak from a recruiters’ standpoint, giving us another perspective to look from.”
Career Expo App
The Spring 2016 Career Expo will continue to feature the expo app! This app will be useful to research companies by their industry, city preferences, and the majors they are recruiting for. The app also has a navigation function to help direct students to the RecSports Center as well as from one recruiter’s booth to another. We will not have an Expo Brochure this semester; so you will need this app!
But is it okay to use my cell phone at the Expo? Yes, employers are also using this app and know that this is the tool being used by students to navigate the event.
Student Experience: “The app helped me narrow down the recruiters I wanted to talk to while I was preparing for Expo, and also pinpointed exactly where the booths were and made it so much easier to navigate through all the people and booths. ”
