Networking and Recruiting Events

First Ever Engineering Interview Days, April 8 and 9, 2021

Instead of a late semester fair, which would have to be held virtually due to CDC and UK guidelines, we have decided to host virtual interview days through the Zoom platform. Between March 14 and 27, students can search uky.joinhandshake.com's job postings for the job label (it's in the filters) "egr interview day sp21" (or just "interview" as it should be the only label that contains that term).

You can then apply for each job that you qualify for and are interested in. If the employers feel that your qualifications meet their requirements, they will request that you sign up for an interview slot with them (hosted via zoom) on April 8 or 9. The request to sign up will arrive by April 2 and you'll have a couple of days to sign up. Please be sure to check your Handshake notification settings so that you won't miss any messages.


SAVE THE DATE: Fall Engineering and Computer Science Career Fair, September 21, 2021, 12-4 pm (EST)

Meet with employers to market your skills for future co-ops, internships and full time position. We plan to host this event in person at the Bill Gatton Student Center on UK's campus. Event registration will go live in the summer.
