The Engineering Career Center (ECC) provides helpful resources specifically geared toward UIC College of Engineering students and alumni for successfully securing internships, co-ops and jobs.

Conducting an efficient job or internship search

The most effective job and internship searches require a blend of applying, following up with employers, networking and attending career-related events. It’s not just about filling out mass online applications and waiting for a response. Your search can be more efficient by the quality of your efforts as opposed to the quantity of applications you fill out.

Why she attended: “Some companies have a policy of campus hiring which makes attending career fairs worth it! Also, you get to talk to employers and get their feedback on your resume.”
