What should I expect?

The day of the event you will arrive at the CUB Sr. Ballroom in business professional attire and check in to receive your name tag.  You will then be ushered into the CUB Senior ballroom where there will be a panel discussion lasting about twenty minutes.  Following the panel discussion, you will be free to visit employers at their tables.  Light appetizers will be passed during the event.  The CNN Prep Workshops are a great tool to help you learn more about what to expect (see below).

How can I prepare?

  1. Do your research.  Learn as much as you can about the companies you are interested in.  Employers want to know that you have an affinity for their company and that you can articulate how you would succeed there.
  2. Attend as many Information Sessions as you can to learn about the companies attending CNN.
    • Information Sessions will be held in Todd 121 two weeks before CNN and will feature up to four employers at each session.  Each employer will speak about their company culture and how to successfully apply for internships or post-grad openings.
    • Food will be provided at each information session.

      Dates:  Monday, January 22 through Thursday, January 25

      Time:  Food served at 4:30 p.m., Information Sessions starts at 5:00 p.m.

  3. Apply for the jobs posted on Handshake by employers attending CNN. Look for additional information on our Monday Morning Job Board.  We will feature jobs posted by employers attending CNN in December and January.
