Dow Chemical is interested in graduate/post-doc CEEs and is planning to conduct job interviews in August.  Dow’s deadline is quickly approaching (August 2), so students need to either claim or create their Handshake @ Illinois accounts, upload résumés, and apply before that date to be considered.

The url for the Handshake @ Illinois system is: http://handshake.illinois.edu and from there, students can either login with their netid and password or, if they did not have an account automatically created (in other words, if they hadn’t yet registered for Fall classes when the upload happened a couple of weeks ago), they can create an account using the link to the form.

Dow will be interviewing on August 15-16.
