Resources for Engineering Students

Engineering & Computing Career Fair

Calvin's annual Engineering & Computing Career Fair takes place every February. Contact Laurie Lemmen for more information.

  • See our handout for information about how to succeed at a career fair.

Engineering Resume Book

Each year, the career development office publishes a resume book of senior engineering students, which is distributed to over 200 companies that employ engineers. Employers use the resume book to pre-select candidates for on-campus interviews or to contact students directly regarding job openings.
