Meet recruiters looking for Fulton Schools students and grads

The Fulton Schools has its own specialized career fairs, tailored to your campus and degree! Check out the list of employers on Handshake and be ready to impress! Dress professionally and bring your résumé. Check Inner Circle for updates and details, or learn more about the recruiting days

Mechanical engineering undergrad Erin Huber says the in-person experience of career fairs is a good one to have.

“It’s a great experience to network with reps, establish interest in a company, and get advice on how to be a better fit with a company,” Huber says. “It’s better to get face to face interaction than just going to a company’s website.”

Mark your calendars for the Fall 2018 Fulton Schools Career Fairs, September 25–27, 2018. Make sure to attend the correct day for your academic level.

Learn on the job

Classes and projects offer some great experience to put on your résumé. Internships and cooperative education programs give you practical work experience related to your major and a strong competitive advantage. Internships are usually one summer of supervised work experience related to your chosen career field. The Cooperative Education Program (co-op) is a longer-term employment commitment of a summer–fall or spring–summer. These experiential learning programs help foster your professional, personal and skill development, and on top of that, they’re paid experience! Experiential learning is a key element to an engineer’s transition from school-to-work.

During the summer of 2017, five seniors were brought on to work on innovating a cybersecurity initiative for McKesson, the oldest and largest health care company in the nation.
