Computing That Serves

How to Build Visibility

You want to attract students who fit your corporation's needs and lifestyle. Students want to hear your company's message right from the source before they select the job that's right for them. BYU and the Computer Science Department give companies an opportunity to convey this message face to face.

Presentations and Lectures

Information Sessions / Tech Talks

BYU plays host to companies who want to communicate their name and mission to prospective employees. Your company is invited to schedule campus rooms and services for information sessions. Career Placement Services will also publicize the event to the types of students you are looking for. If you are interested in setting up an information session, please send your request to: recruiting@byu.edu.  You may also contact Marvel Perez at 801-422-9058 or marvel_perez@byu.edu.

Talmage Building Booths

Companies may advertise internship and employment opportunities to Computer Science students by setting up a table in the first-floor foyer of the Talmage Building for up to five hours on a given day.  There is no charge for this, but we encourage companies to make a generous donation to the Computer Science mentoring fund.  Available dates and times are limited.  Only one or two companies may have a booth on any given day.  If you are interested in participating in an event of this type, please contact the Computer Science Department Secretary at csoffice@cs.byu.edu.

CS Clubs

Many of our clubs offer opportunities for companies to sponsor and/or be involved with club events.  This is a great way to get face-time with our students (since we do not allow recruiting in classes).  If you are interested in participating in an event of this type, please contact the Computer Science Department Secretary at csoffice@cs.byu.edu.

Career Seminars

Individuals involved in the computer science industry are often asked to give students an inside look at career possibilities in the industry. Presenters are invited to tell students about their jobs and what it is like to work at their company. They also acquaint students with relevant issues in the market. Presentation slots are limited and fill up in advance, but if you are interested in making a presentation, please contact the Computer Science Department Secretary at csoffice@cs.byu.edu.

Research Colloquia

Every week during the academic school year, noted researchers come to present their groundbreaking research in the field. If you are interested in presenting at a research colloquium, please contact Dr. William Barrett.

 

Mentoring

Resumé Writing Sessions

As students prepare for the bi-annual career fairs, the department or college may hold résumé writing sessions where recruiters and alumni come and help students prepare their résumés. The session allows students to get an idea of what recruiters look for in a résumé and recruiters and alumni get an opportunity to mentor. Contact the Computer Science Department Secretary at csoffice@cs.byu.edu or call (801) 422-3027 if you are interested in participating in a résumé writing session.

Mock Interviews

Mock interviews give students an opportunity to experience the kinds of questions and problems that they will have to answer in an interview for programming occupations. Students learn to think on their feet and apply the principles that they have learned in their classes in front of a recruiting expert. The interviews last 30 minutes apiece and recruiters are given the opportunity to ask questions they deem appropriate. Students are then given a short debriefing period where the recruiter advises them on what they can do better. If you are interested in participating in the mock interviews, contact the Computer Science Department Secretary at csoffice@cs.byu.edu.
