Career Week

Career Week (Tuesday, September 5 through Friday, September 8, 2023) prepares rising juniors, graduating seniors, and graduate students with the professional skills necessary for a successful full-time search. It is strategically placed prior to E-Council Engineering Expo (September 18 and 19), allowing participating companies to engage early with top engineering talent.

Why Sponsor?

Sponsors have the opportunity to brand their company and engage with students prior to the Expo. Being a sponsor of Career Week is a benefit that ECS Platinum Partners enjoy. There is also the opportunity for companies to sponsor Career Week without being an ECS Partner.

Your generous $1000 sponsorship grants your company the following benefits:​

  • Name and logo on all Career Week marketing materials: Examples include event website, workshop slides, program materials/handouts, social media campaigns, & email outreach recognizing company sponsors​.

  • Inclusion in Career Week signature event, Network-ish: On Thursday, Sept. 7 from 1pm-5pm, employers and students will interact via this drop-in style event at the Blackwell. Engage with students regarding their resumes, elevator pitches, your company, networking, & more! Sponsoring companies may send two company reps to the event.

  • Meet the Sponsors Night participation: Happening after Network-ish on Thursday, Sept. 7 from 6pm-7:30pm. Your two company reps can participate in the following:

  1. Sponsor Mini-Panels: One rep from your company shares expertise with students seeking career employment in a topical mini-panel (mini-panel topics & your specific time will be shared as event date gets closer).
  2. Resume Drop/Meet & Greets: One rep from your company does quick 1:1 chats with students, and students have the opportunity to drop their resume off at your table. Happening concurrent to the Mini-Panels.

Non Sponsor Option
