The University of Texas at Austin Department of Computer Science (UTCS) Friends of Computer Science (FoCS) 2012 Career Brunch was held in conjunction with the College of Natural Sciences (CNS) Career Expo on September 24, 2012 at the Frank Erwin Center.
The FoCS Career Brunch brings together FoCS partners and select UTCS students in an energetic networking and recruiting venue. Department Chair Bruce Porter kicked off the event by recognizing FoCS partners and our top UTCS students, including Turing Scholars, student organization representatives, and five-year BS/MS Integrated Program students.
Attendees commented that the event was extremely beneficial. Several students said the brunch was a great opportunity to establish relationships and learn more about a potential employer's business model, corporate culture, and technology projects. FoCS partners commented that the casual atmosphere facilitated meeting our students on a more substantive personal level while simultaneously providing top tier candidates for their recruitment goals.
