"FOCS and the Natural Sciences Career Fair offers HBK the unique opportunity to spend quality time with each student, which in return ensures a perfect match for both parties." -Larry Lindsey, HBK Recruiting
The University of Texas at Austin Department of Computer Sciences (UTCS) Friends of Computer Sciences (FoCS) participated in the College of Natural Sciences Spring Career Fair on February 2, 2006.
FoCS members, Centaur Technology, Cisco Systems, HBK, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, JBoss, Lockheed Martin, Microsoft, National Instruments and Sun Microsystems enjoyed an energetic level of recruiting and networking activity at the fair. Although many companies can participate in the Career Fair, only UTCS FoCS members enjoy personalized support and promotion for their Computer Sciences recruiting activity.
"FoCS activities have allowed IBM access to the very best students and to key faculty members. We have found this to be of great value." -Jerry Dziuk, IBM University Recruiting Manager
The Computer Sciences Office of External Affairs offered an information booth and was on-hand to introduce students to FoCS members, talk to companies about scholarships and internships for current students and provide FoCS ribbons. FoCS members attending the Career Fair reported a high degree of satisfaction with the recruiting results from their efforts at the Career Fair.
"The promotion from the Computer Science department of Centaur as an FoCS member was evidenced by the quality of incredibly bright candidates we spoke to during the Spring Career Fair. We are very grateful for the opportunity to participate and the access to the CS students."
-Christy Wolter, HR Director Centaur Technology, Inc.
