The School of Concrete and Construction Management has many opportunities to connect students and employers for part-time work, internship opportunities, and full-time career positions upon graduation. Below are several ways that the School helps connect candidates with industry. View our Events Calendar to see a current list of events.

Employers can email openings for current students, upcoming grads and/or experienced alumni to email@example.com for posting.
The School is glad to help your company host a social during the academic year. Socials are company-sponsored meals, typically dinners, but breakfasts have also been well attended. Companies present information about their company, their area of the industry, geography, and opportunities available to students. These are great learning tools for students, giving students a snapshot at different areas of the industry or companies that support our programs. Typically companies that host a social will conduct interviews for internships or full-time opportunities later in the day or the following day.
Fall Networking Event
Each fall semester, around the end of October, the School hosts a Networking Event. This event is similar to a career fair but we encourage all employers, even if not actively hiring for openings, and all students, even if not currently seeking an internship or full-time job to attend. It is low cost for the employer and allows recruiters to quickly learn more about our programs and student population. This event is designed to introduce students to the wide variety of employers they may find employment with upon graduation. It is as much about gathering information and contacts as it is to find an opportunity that semester.
Internship Speed Interviewing Day
Each spring, around late February or early March, the School hosts the Internship Speed Interviewing Day to connect students with internships for the upcoming summer. Companies will reserve a table and will spend several hours in rapid-fire interviews with students. This is a quick and easy way to meet with candidates for summer internships. Interviews are all morning with a lunch for all students and employers to allow for further conversation or arrange interviews later in the day.
