Career Engagement Opportunities (CEOs)

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. Information regarding ECRC Virtual Company Networking Days and Student Organization Collaborations is included below.

ECRC Virtual Company Networking Days

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

Company Networking Days 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. Contact your ECRC Career Services Manager with any questions.

Student Organization Collaborations

We encourage you to partner with student organizations as part of your recruitment strategy with the College of Engineering. Your company will have the opportunity to engage with talent and showcase why students should work for you through unique, interactive events such as:

  • Case Studies/Project Simulations
  • Lunch and Learn 
  • Tech Talks

Hiring International Students

It is not uncommon for employers to hire international students. Fortunately, it’s not a difficult process for students to gain permission to work within the United States. In fact, most of the international students you may be interested in as candidates are on non-immigrant F-1 and J-1 student visas. This means that they can work under certain conditions.

ECRC Corporate Partner Program

The ECRC Corporate Partner Program is an opportunity for employers to support the ECRC in our effort to prepare students for their transition from college to career and to expand the employer’s brand on campus.

Employers recruiting at the University of Michigan (U-M) Engineering Career Resource Center (ECRC) must adhere to the Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) guidelines, the National Association of Colleges and Employers Principles of Professional Conduct for Employment Professionals and the guidelines included within the ECRC’s Recruitment Policy Statement.
