Career and Internship Fairs

Information Sessions
Information sessions are a perfect way to highlight your company, its culture, and the opportunities that you are offering our talent. These smaller, more intimate, events allow a rich way for you to get to know our students and alumni and are a great way to assess whether their fit and experience level are right for your opportunities. At DU, information sessions take a wide variety of forms. Whether it is a classic presentation style event, coffee chat, lunch-and-learn or network style, our team works with you to create something that will be specific to your company.

Specialized Events
From case-interview training events to hack-a-thons and taco-truck tabling, our special events are a fun and interactive way to assess a larger number of students while highlighting your company, culture and work. Our team can help you brainstorm the best type of event for accessing the talent you are seeking while emphasizing what is great about your organization.

City Treks
Let us bring the students to you! Site visits help you show potential candidates what it is like to actually work at your organization, as well as highlight the organization’s unique culture. We coordinate with our student population and your team to create an experience in your building that really demonstrates the “who you are” as an organization. City treks can take the form of guided tours, lunch presentations or even a coordinated meet and greet with DU alumni who currently work at your organization. Whatever creative way there is to experience your company, this is one of the best ways for your future talent to interact with you on your turf!

On-Campus Interview Schedules
With the rigors of both student and recruiter schedules, our On-Campus Interview program offers a way to let our staff handle the planning while allowing your company to meet the students where they are. We help you coordinate rooms on campus that make it simple for your recruiters to manage a larger number of first round interviews with less logistics on their plate.

Senior Design Capstone Projects
The University of Denver’s Senior Design Capstone Program engages mechanical, electrical, and computer engineering students in projects chosen by industry sponsors.  Through teamwork, critical thinking and thorough systems engineering procedures, senior design projects allow students to apply the fundamentals learned in their first three years to real-world, multidisciplinary engineering problems.
