All current engineering and computer science students at University of Michigan Ann Arbor, as well as alumni within one year of graduation, are invited to attend the fair. Students who are seeking a summer internship or full-time offer are especially encouraged to attend.
I am a freshman -- should I come to the fair?
Of course! Some companies do offer internships for students the summer right after their freshman year. Even if the company you would like to work for may not be hiring, the more experience speaking with recruiters, the better!
