How It Works

  • From 9:30 to 11:30 a.m., the morning consists of a career fair that is open to all undergraduates from the consortium schools. Pre-arranged interviews are held in the afternoon from 12:30 to 5 p.m.
  • Student registration begins on October 31, 2016. You can apply for interviews online by creating an account, uploading your resume, and submitting it to individual positions of interest by November 28, 2016 at 11:59 p.m.
  • Whether you have an interview scheduled or not, all registered participants, can attend the career fair in the morning and talk to employers about their organizations and open positions.
  • Some employers at the career fair leave room on their interview schedules and may add you based on a conversation you have with them in the morning.
  • In the afternoon, employers interview pre-selected students for jobs and internships.
  • Students attending the CICs are responsible for their own transportation and lodging.
