What is CEE Networking Night?

Networking Night is a chance to meet with recruiters outside of the job fair environment on the evening(s) preceding the CEE Job Fair. The event provides an opportunity for current CEE students to have conversations with recruiters and engineering professionals, and includes short information sessions by each company. Approximately 200 students and 20 companies participate each night. 

Update: CEE will not be holding Networking Night during the Spring 2023 or Fall 2023 job fairs, due to dwindling student interest in recent semesters. We hope to resume the event in 2024!
