James Madison University’s College of Integrated Science and Engineering (CISE) in partnership with Career and Academic Planning (CAP) will host its first ever CISE Career and Internship Fair Tuesday, Sept. 19 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Integrated Science and Technology/Computer Science (ISAT/CS) and Engineering/Geosciences (ENGeo) buildings.

Representatives from over 25 for-profit, government, and non-profit organizations will be available to meet with students regarding employment and internship opportunities. Registered organizations represent a wide range of fields and include Accenture, Amazon, CapTech, Deloitte, Daikin, Department of Homeland Security, Mapcom, MITRE, Northrop Grumman, Verizon, amongst others. All CISE majors including first-year students are encouraged to attend. Alumni are also welcome. 

“We are very excited to be offering our first Career Fair for CISE majors. By focusing on companies desiring the skills and technical expertise of our students, we can help students and businesses find the best fit,” said Dr. Bob Kolvoord, CISE Dean. “It is a great way for students to make connections with our business and industry partners, both old and new, to support their workforce needs.”

Students can prepare for the Fair by

  • Downloading the Recruit-A-Duke mobile app (called Careers by Symplicity). Through the app, students can view which employers will be attending the Fair, search for jobs and internships by major and industry.

  • Attending JMU’s Career and Academic Planning walk-in hours with career educators, workshops, resume reviews, resume prep or set up an appointment for tips on how to prepare for the career fair.

  • Attending one of CAP’s Practice interview sessions with employers or use InterviewStream, an online tool for practicing alone on a webcam.

Students planning to attend the Fair should dress professionally, have an updated version of their resume, research the organizations ahead of time, and develop a short elevator speech to introduce themselves to prospective employers.
