Spring EOC Information for Employers
The Spring Employment Opportunities Conference (EOC) is a campus-wide career fair for employers from all industries – non-technical and technical. Employer participants are asked to showcase non-technical job opportunities (i.e. analytics, marketing, human resources, management, advertising, writing, and more) in addition to technical positions. This event will draw students from all majors and degree levels, including Bachelors, Masters, MBA and PhD students seeking full-time or summer internship opportunities. Here is an overview of Carnegie Mellon’s Academic Programs. Alumni from all backgrounds will also be in attendance and representatives are encouraged to recruit for experienced candidates.
