Students were dressed to impress with resumes in hand at CU’s annual Career Fair.
The fair was on Wednesday in the UMC Ballroom. Over 100 different companies attended, giving students the opportunity to discuss possible internships and careers.
According to the CU-Boulder website, “the Career Fair is open to CU-Boulder students and alumni who are seeking career information and opportunities.”
Jordan Lind, an 18-year-old freshman communications major, went to the Career fair for the first time this year.
“If I was an engineer I think it would be really helpful, but being a communications major right now, it was kind of overwhelming,” Lind said.

There were well-known companies from Google, Shell, and Chipotle, to lesser known ones such as Buckle, Capital IQ, and Pivotal Labs. Students could walk around and choose what companies to speak to.
“I spoke to Alyssa from Solutelia about the opportunities that they wanted me to do for writing,” Lind said.
For upperclassmen, this was their opportunity to find potential jobs after graduation. Underclassmen also benefited from the experience. Lind said the career fair was a tool to prepare for the next few years in college.
“It is a really good opportunity for upperclassmen and seniors, so they can figure out what they want to do for the rest of their lives and get some ideas,” Lind said.
