Career Engagement Opportunities

Recruiter and student shaking hands

Many companies have discovered that the best way to assure a successful record of hires is building a solid, ongoing relationship with Michigan Engineering and its student body. Companies are encouraged to participate in career fairs, career days, career engagement opportunities with student organizations, and other events.

For assistance, please contact the ECRC staff.

Recruiting options available with Michigan Engineering

Career Engagement Opportunities (CEOs) are a great way to engage with engineering students and continue to build your brand. CEOs are hosted through the ECRC as well as our engineering student organizations.

ECRC Virtual Company Networking Days

Join the ECRC in supporting our students’ development while at the same time enhancing your campus presence! 

During the Winter 2021 Recruiting Season the ECRC will be hosting two Virtual Company Networking Days!  The Company Networking Days will provide an opportunity to have casual conversations with Michigan Engineering students to enhance your organization’s visibility, increase brand awareness, and allow students to explore careers and day to day operations within your organization/industry. We encourage you to consider inviting Michigan Engineering alums and/or engineers from your organization to participate in this event! The Virtual Company Networking Days are not intended to be a hiring event, if your organization is currently recruiting for open positions, contact ecrc-ocr@umich.edu to discuss more appropriate event options.
