A company I’m interested in said it does not sponsor visas, but I need visa sponsorship and really want to work there. Should I meet with them any way?

No. Please respect the corporate partners attending this event and their requirements for hiring. When a company specifies that they do not sponsor visas, it is a waste of your time and their time for you to wait in line for an interview.

Keep in mind, however, that these companies may attend a future CISE Career Fair and may be sponsoring visas at that time.
