More employers means even more connections were made at the 12th annual UW CEE Career Fair on January 18. The career fair was the largest yet, with a 48% increase in industry participation. A total of 74 companies participated from across the United States and Canada, 30 of which attended for the first time.

A total of 350 students attended the event, held in the HUB Ballroom. Founded in 2007, the Career Fair connects students with employers 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.

Following the career fair, industry representatives enjoyed a post-fair happy hour reception. Thank you to the many companies and organizations that continue to participate and support the CEE Career Fair.
