What are the Career and Internship Connections (CICs)? Why should I go?

  • CICs are career events in NYC, DC, Boston, and Los Angeles held over the January break.
  • The events have a morning career fair open to all undergraduates from the consortium schools and afternoon pre-arranged interviews (that you apply for AHEAD of time – by 11/30/15).
  • Many of these employers will not be traveling to your home campus, but will be happy to meet with you in their local city. These events are an excellent opportunity to network and interview face-to-face with prospective internship and full-time employers.

What’s the process? How is the day organized?

  • The days are broken up into TWO parts – A morning career fair (9:30-11:30am) open to all students from consortium schools and afternoon interviews (12:30-5pm).
  • Apply for interviews by uploading and submitting your resume to individual jobs by Monday, November 30th, 2015
  • During the morning career fair, ALL students (with or without interviews) can connect with employers to obtain information about their organization and available internships and full-time job opportunities.
  • Some employers may leave room on their interview schedules and add students based on their morning conversations with students.
