Clark Construction Session–Wednesday, Jan 17, More 234, 500 to 620 pm

Clark Construction will conduct a session about their company the evening before the CEE Career Fair. At least two Clark employees will participate, Riley Link (UW grad) and KK Clark…both terrific individuals and active construction engineers. At the session they will discuss the company, hiring plans and how they will conduct interviews for both intern and full-time positions. At this time I do not know how many folks they seek for employment…we will find out together. Also, they plan to bring some food to the event. They will also be at the CEE Career Fair the following day.

As noted above, the session is on Wed, January 17, More 234 and will start at 500 pm. This event is a great one to ask questions and get information that might be difficult to obtain during the Career Fair. The room only holds about 50 seats and I assume it will be full. We tried to get a larger room but this is the only one in More available.
