Event Information

VINE provides employers an opportunity to meet in a smaller setting with Viterbi students who are actively involved and searching for internships and entry-level positions.
This more intimate setting will allow students to learn more about your organization, the positions you have available, and to practice their networking skills. It also provides an opportunity for you to showcase your organization and cultivate relationships with potential future employees.
THIS IS NOT A TABLING OPPORTUNITY
PLEASE DO NOT SHIP OR BRING DISPLAY MATERIALS!
NO NEED TO COLLECT RESUMES
A RESUME BOOK OF PARTICIPATING STUDENTS WILL BE MADE AVAILABLE AFTER THE EVENT
