Start your search early at our Virtual Career Fair!

August 05, 2009


From August 5th through August 31, 2009, students and alumni seeking career opportunities will be able to participate in an online virtual career fair designed to connect them with employers interested in recruiting talent from Columbia University. The fair will feature companies such as the Department of State, Pepsico, CloudCrowd LLC, Intuit and Zynga.

The virtual career fair will be hosted on the Alumwire Professional Network, an online community in which students, alumni and employers can interact with each other in an environment that combines aspects of traditional job search sites with familiar social networking sites like LinkedIn and Facebook. Job seekers can register for the fair by selecting the "Columbia University Network" and using their Columbia University affiliated email address. After registering, they will be able to research organizations, post resumes, apply to positions, connect with employers and much more.

Job seekers who have previously registered with Alumwire can login immediately.  In addition to applying to positions, job seekers can connect with employers through real-time virtual chat-booths and communicate with other participants. The days and times that these companies plan on using the chat functionality for August will be announced on a rolling basis in the Alumwire newsletter.  You can also view the chat schedule.
