E2 Series (Engineers Employed) Fall 2022

The Engineers Employed Series or better known as E2 Series, was created by the College of Engineering to ensure that students majoring in engineering, computer science, and data science at the University of Arkansas will be better prepared to enter the workforce. Through various professional development workshops and events, UA College of Engineering students will be equipped to face the challenges associated with the job search process and finding a career that best suits their interests, motivational traits, personality, values, abilities, aptitudes, personal work styles, and work environment preferences.

The E2 Series consists of career readiness workshops, career fairs/events, and employer/student meet and greets that will allow students the opportunity to interact with local, regional, and national employers looking to hire engineers, computer scientists, and data scientists. Students will learn how to create eye-catching resumes, interview effectively, and network with employers that are promoting open positions.
