DESCRIPTION: Although the number of jobs are increasing, having a degree alone does not guarantee placement after graduation, and trying to set yourself apart in the job market can be a challenge. At this session, you will get top tips about the hiring process from an experienced engineer & recruiter who will discuss how your “personal brand” & application materials can be molded to make yourself more marketable.
