CAREER FAIR

THU, 2/2/17

Join us for the Columbia University Energy Symposium Career Fair. The event will gather premier talent from the most prestigious energy-focused graduate programs from around the country as well as top employers from across the energy sector. 

 

In addition to the main Career Fair that will host employers from across the energy sector in an open auditorium for the informal meet-and-greets, there will also be informal one-on-one coffee chats. These coffee chats will allow students and employers to get to know one another in an informal setting that is not normally afforded in the traditional career fair setting.
