ITE UIUC is proud to host the third annual Chicago networking trip in collaboration with ITE Illinois Section. We are excited to be able to take our members to network with top transportation firms in downtown Chicago. The current firms include Jacobs and CivilTech, but will also include at least one more company. This is a great opportunity to talk directly to the top engineers at the firms and exchange resumes. 

The trip will be on Friday, Nov. 4, 2016. We will meet outside Newmark Civil Engineer Lab (outside the Yeh Center on Matthews Ave) at 7 AM and return by 6 PM. We have limited seats on the bus, so it will be on a first come first serve basis. 

If you're interested, please go to tinyurl.com/ITEChicago16 and fill out the form by midnight Saturday, Oct. 29. The event will cost $15 per student. See the attached flyer for details.
