Employer Information Sessions

Attending Employer Information Sessions is an excellent way to learn about career and employment opportunities.  Many employers who recruit through CBU take advantage of Employer Information Sessions to meet face-to-face with students and graduates to share information about employment opportunities within their organizations.  This is a great opportunity to network with potential employers, learn about their company and the industry, and to secure employment.
