Virtual Friday Company Days

Company Days are an opportunity to network with company representatives. We will put you in a small zoom group with other students and a company representative. Only students who submit a resume by the deadline will be allowed to participate. This is a great opportunity to ask questions about the company and learn about the opportunities that are available. There will be no information session instead we will focus on networking. 

How to participate:

  1. Submit your resume online by the Tuesday before the company day at noon.
  2. We will reach out to you a few days before the Company Day to choose a time block that works best for you. 
  3. If you don't receive anything on the Wednesday before the Company Day, then please email us at
