Upcoming Events

Get involved and network with talented students at our upcoming Spring 2023 events:

Thursday, Feb. 16, 2023
4 – 6 p.m.
Bill & Pat Child Family Community Room (Child Hall) 7th floor, Spencer Fox Eccles Business Building

This networking event turns the typical format upside down. Employers identify the top five skills they are looking for, and then we match you to students with those skills! It’s the perfect opportunity for small and mid-size companies or those in industry niches not typically sought out by students.

How does it work?

  • This event is all about skill-matching, so employers will not need signage, tablecloths, or swag. Instead, you’ll choose the top skill categories your company needs, and we will post those at your table.
  • Students wear lanyards, sharing their top five skills.
  • Employers and students connect! Introduce your company through meaningful conversations about training, career paths, and culture.

We’re excited to connect you with future employees! Register on Handshake.
