Fall 2012 CSRC Career Fair

Publish Date: 09/21/2012

On Monday, September 17, the Computer Science Resources Consortium had its fall luncheon and Career Fair.   This fall's career fair, held in Cassell Coliseum, was the largest since the dot.com boom, with 78 companies attending.  For the fall 2012 semester, the CSRC welcomed 20 new companies and institutes: Accenture, Agilex, CCS Inc, Digital Receiver Technology, EMC, Excella Consulting, Gannett Co., Georgia Tech Research Institute, Hughes Network Systems, Lutron Electronics, MetroStar Systems, Open Software Integrators, Packet Forensics, Palantir Technologies, PIETECH Inc, Readyforce, Solers, TIBCO Software, Ultimate Software, ViaSat, and Zeta Associates.  The CSRC also welcomed back Hughes Network Systems.

The members of the CSRC were on campus to learn more about the department and to recruit students as full-time employees, interns, and cooperative education students. CSRC companies provide support for CS student organizations and student scholarships.

Attending the luncheon in Owens Banquet Hall were 100+ company representatives, CS faculty and undergraduate scholarship winners. Sixty undergraduates were recognized for receiving scholarships for the 2012/13 academic year.  The majority of these funds were provided by the College of Engineering, with CGI, the Department of Computer Science, and the CSRC contributing to the total. 

CSRC members had the opportunity to visit several classes and speak with Computer Science students to discuss how to prepare for career fairs and interviews, the variety of opportunities in the field, and the abundance of jobs available to CS majors. 

With the number and variety of positions offered by our CSRC partners, it is definitely a great time to be a CS major!
