2012 CNS Career Fair & Startup Village

The 2012 CNS Career Fair, held on February 2nd at the Frank Erwin Center, had 126 employers in attendance seeking candidates for full-time, part-time, internship and co-op positions. Computer Science students and alumni were in high demand, with 91% (115) of employers interested in them. Seventeen of those employers were our Friends of Computer Science (FoCS) partners. FoCS partners at the Career Fair were recognized with a special FoCS ribbon to drive CS students to their booths.

Startup Village

UTCS, UT CNS and the startup community joined together to pilot the first "Startup Village" at the Career Fair. This initial opportunity provided a platform for startup companies to build their brand and provide information about employment opportunities to students. Startup Village, a specially reserved and themed section of the larger Career Fair, enjoyed heavy student traffic as students stopped to talk about entrepreneurial opportunities with a number of companies ranging from gaming to a social media site for families to mobile computing and media to software development.
