LSI 2018 Career Fair

 

An exciting aspect of LSI is the opportunity for exhibitors to connect with talented people that may be seeking internships and jobs. We expect to have over 1,500 attendees and dozens of companies exhibiting in the trade show. We also expect people attending the full conference will represent hundreds more companies, many of whom may be seeking new employees. Several hundred students from the University of Rochester, Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), Monroe Community College, Nazareth, Cornell University, and other colleges will be attending and many are looking for career opportunities. Simply put, LSI is a great opportunity for companies to connect with people that may help grow their organizations and advance their innovations.

 

For exhibitors and conference goers looking for talent:

UR, RIT, Nazareth, and Cornell all use the same platform (Handshake) to help facilitate the recruitment of undergraduate and graduate students. Companies can create an account and post jobs and internships to all these institutions. If you represent a company with openings, the Handshake platform can be accessed with the instructions below and your opportunities will be visible to students immediately! We encourage you to post the opportunity with a deadline around the LSI event and you can contact the students as needed before the event. If you are an alumnus of any of these institutions, reach out to their career center to engage with students directly.

For students and alumni of universities that use Handshake, upload your updated resume and search for companies attending LSI (listed below) to see if they have opportunities available. For students at other colleges and universities, we will make all job postings available upon request.

 

For non-students wanting to talk with potential employers, you can scan this list of companies represented at LSI and contact them directly. This is the full list of exhibitors and companies represented at the conference, so some of these companies may not be hiring.

 

We cannot guarantee how many companies at LSI will be looking for talent in the immediate future or how many students will be looking for positions related to the areas covered by CEIS. However, LSI is shaping up to be an exciting event and a great way to make connections for the short and long term.
