ALEX YOU Recently, you may have seen UT students dressed professionally on their way to Career Fairs and Expos in search of industry jobs and internships. These large-scale events are packed with companies and have ample opportunities. However, the CNS Career Fair is directed mainly at technologically-based majors, leaving a huge percentage of UT’s largest college on their own.
Whether you are a Biology major, a Math major, or a Textiles and Apparel major, the ultimate goal is a successful and fulfilling job. These students are expected to find their own opportunities whether that may be shadowing a doctor for medical school, research with on campus professors, or simply hoping that their degree gets them a job in the real world. As a solution, The Natural Sciences Council presents CNS Connections, where company professionals interested in majors all over the College of Natural Sciences meet with interested students for a night of networking.
CNS Connections is an event aimed to aid current UT undergraduates in connecting with working professionals about the various job opportunities and diverse paths available after graduation. This event is co-hosted by Career Services and the Natural Sciences Council in the SAC Ballroom on October 12 from 6-8PM. CNS Connections will open a business casual environment to allow participants to congregate in small group conversations. Students will be able to gain first-hand insights about the possibilities of professional paths available with a UT science degree.
As a perk, you can expect excellent catering at tables to accent your conversations. This can be a great opportunity to answer any questions you may have about the future of real world industries pertaining to your major. Pay these companies a visit to expand your network and start your job search.
