Company turnout still high for 2014 Spring Career Day

Mines hosted the biannual Career Day Feb. 11, which featured global organizations in engineering, science and technology. More than 2,200 students, graduates and alumni attended.

“I wanted to take advantage of this opportunity because I don’t think many schools have more than 200 companies come twice a year,” said civil engineering student Greg Proulx. “It’s nice to see what’s out there.”

Julianne Fantich, who graduated in December, said it was helpful there were more biomedical companies this year.

“Now that I am looking for a full time job, I want to build connections in the industry,” Fantich said.

Mines has a high success rate for 2012-13 graduates. Ninety-one percent of undergraduates and 95 percent of graduate students have strong outcomes and employment.
