Students can seek out potential jobs at the Internship and Career Center’s (ICC) annual fair from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the ARC Pavilion.
All 128 companies present are listed online at iccweb.ucdavis.edu. Students can search by variances like industry, location and recruited majors. Each company will have a table with one to five company representatives, such as a UC Davis alum, human resources representative or hiring manager, who could do a mini-interview on the spot.
ICC recommends students bring a resume and their student ID card to check in at the front door.
In addition to local opportunities, some companies offer internships abroad. For example, SSA Global Ed provides international internships and long-term jobs in Singapore and Intrax Intern Abroad offers business-oriented internships with host companies in London, Paris, Barcelona, Madrid, Berlin, Beijing and Tokyo.
Both SSA Global Ed and Intrax Intern Abroad are recruiting all majors, as are other companies ranging from the Central Intelligence Agency to Abercrombie & Fitch. Majors receiving the most recruitment are mechanical engineering and computer science, with 35 and 32 interested companies, respectively.
