Each quarter at Neumont University, Career Services hosts a "Career Week." And like so many other things Neumont, we do things differently. Career Week typically consists of several smaller events. Tech Talks are held each day at 12 p.m. in Room 323, interviews take place on campus every day, and networking events.
Students are encouraged to attend presentations, or Tech Talks, where representatives (usually a software developer and hiring manager) share what it's like to work at their company and the kinds of talent and skills they are looking to hire. NU's Industry Partners also buy lunch for the students who attend the event and often stick around to get to know students one-on-one after the presentation. Over the years, we've had Tech Talks from Google, Obsidian, 3M, EA, Activision, 1-800 Contacts, Oracle, and more.
Throughout the quarter, but with particular emphasis on Career Week, you'll find students interviewing in offices around campus. Freshman have transformed from nervous teens to confident young adults sharing their skills with potential employers. And because our grads go on to work across the country, they often interview online too.
Students are prepared for their interviews through a series of professional development courses and coaching from Career Services staff.
An Industry Partner i.e. employer of Neumont grads may choose to host a small informal gathering in the evening to get to know students in a more casual environment. Typically, these events are held in The Commons and are open to everyone.
+ Career Fair
If you thought Career Week meant recruiters standing at booths in a large room as students jostled to hand over their resumes, then we have that too. Neumont University's Career Fair is held just once a year in November for all students to get acquainted with local and national companies looking to hire tech super stars.
Like we said, Career Week is different. We offer students and employers four opportunities a year to get to know each other, and our Career Services department works with every student to ensure they are prepared to apply, interview, and accept a job offer before they graduate.
