Undergraduate and graduate students seeking internships and employment opportunities in regional start-ups will find an array of companies at the Startup Expo on March 6, from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. in Benson Memorial Center on campus.
Sponsored by the Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Santa Clara University School of Business, the career fair brings employers seeking a typical Santa Clara student: bright, ambitious, and with a wide variety of skills ready to be put to work in an entrepreneurial setting.
Startup Expo is in its third year, and each year the number of companies represented grows. Among the companies at last year's Expo were RoboteX, Stylematic, Cahoot, Optown, Red Seraphim, and InnoVentions.
"College2Career Transition Workshop" is designed to help seniors prepare for entry into the workplace. The event, scheduled for Thursday, February 28, from 6:00 - 7:30 p.m. in Lucas Hall, will emphasize managing your personal brand, utilizing Career Center resources, and developing "soft skills" so highly valued by today's employers.
The workshop is the second offering from SCUBrand4U, a new initiative from the Leavey School of Business, directed by Buford Barr, a professor of practice in marketing and communications, and veteran of Silicon Valley marketing firms.
