Customized information session Accordion Closed
CEFNS encourages on-campus recruiting and employer presentations in the fall (October-early November) and spring (February- early April).
Your company can register for a customized information session, with fees ranging from $400 to $600 for corporations and $300 to $500 for governmental or non-profit organizations. The fee includes room reservation(s), refreshments for your team and the students, individualized tech support with Jobs 4 Jacks (our online job board), parking passes and campus maps for each team member, event promotion to students via multiple methods, and student workers to assist your team throughout your visit to NAU.
Should the fee present a hardship for your organization, contact CEFNS career development. You may be eligible for a fee reduction.
The fees for a custom information session cover operating our expenses. Any remaining revenue supports career development seminars for NAU CEFNS engineering students, to help them develop the professional skills that employers look for. Sponsoring this program ensures you have candidates who possess skills that reach beyond the technical capabilities they’ve acquired during their academic careers at NAU.
Contact CEFNS Career Development at least one month in advance to plan your event.
