IT Connect Career Fair

  • WHAT: Career fair specifically for Computer Information Systems and Computer Science students
  • WHEN: Friday, November 17, 2017 from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM (CST)
  • WHERE: Miller Education Center - MTSU - 503 E. Bell Street, Murfreesboro, TN 37130 
  • COST: $300 for a table - all proceeds go to the CIS Foundation which provides scholarships for students.  

    Register today!

The IT Connect Career Fair offers IT students and employers the ability to meet and connect.  Employers are welcome to attend to offer full-time and internship positions within any reasonable timeframe.  

Students from Computer Information Systems and Computer Science at MTSU are encouraged to attend and range from freshmen/sophomore level looking for an internship to a graduate student looking for that full-time position.  Last year, over 200 CIS and CS students attended the career fair. 

Want to connect directly with students? 

We are offering informational sessions, which allow companies (2) 30-minute classroom sessions to engage students.  Since an employer has a limited amount of time to speak to students, these classroom sessions offers them more time and space to get to know interested individuals.
