***The CISE department will be holding two career fairs this semester. The first event will be in-person, taking place on Sept. 27 at 1 p.m. in the Reitz Union, Grand Ballroom on campus. The second will be virtual via CareerEco on Oct. 4 at 10 a.m. ***

Why Come to This Career Fair?

The CISE Career Fair provides an opportunity that cannot be found elsewhere. It is the only career fair at the University of Florida that is specifically geared toward students and alumni with experience in computer science, computer engineering, and digital arts and sciences.

By registering, companies will be recognized as a Career Fair Sponsor on the homepage of the website. Companies that register by Aug. 31 will also be recognized on promotional materials. Along with a catered meal, representatives will have a comfortable amount of space for a promotional booth (table and chairs provided), and access to an attendee database, including resumes.
