Resumes at the ready, more than 300 CEE students attended the 14th annual CEE Career Fair on January 23. This year’s event saw record attendance from industry members.

Representatives from more than 92 companies were on hand to discuss career opportunities and internships with both CEE undergraduate and graduate students. Employer participation increased from the previous year by 15%. Several employers, many of which were new this year, were from outside the Seattle area.

Founded in 2007, the CEE Career Fair connects employers with students who are seeking internships and full-time positions. Industry focuses range from general civil engineering to specialty areas such as construction, transportation, geotechnical, structural, water resources/ hydrology/fluid mechanics and environmental engineering. This year, construction saw the biggest sector of employers in attendance.

Industry representatives, many of whom are CEE alumni, enjoyed a post-fair reception with the department chair and other faculty. Thank you to the many companies and organizations that continue to participate and support the CEE Career Fair.
