CS|Source Career Fairs

The Department of Computer Science at Virginia Tech is committed to connecting its talented students with top employers in the industry. Our CS|Source Career Fairs, held in the Fall and Spring semesters each year, provide an invaluable opportunity for both undergraduate and graduate students in Computer Science to network with potential employers, explore internship and full-time job opportunities, and learn about the latest trends in the tech industry.

CS|Source Career Fairs are limited to our CS|Source member companies, all of whom are committed to seeking and recruiting the best and brightest Computer Science students from Virginia Tech. Those non-member employers seeking membership and/or wishing to participate in the CS|Source Career Fair should contact Claire Shirkey, Strategic Relationships Manager, at clairevs@vt.edu

At the CS|Source Career Fairs, Computer Science student attendees engage in meaningful conversations with company representatives, learn about various career paths, and potentially secure interviews for highly sought-after positions. The CS|Source Career Fairs and other CS|Source programming are a testament to the department's dedication to connecting our Computer Science students to employers and preparing students for success in their future careers.

 By participating in our CS|Source Career Fairs, your company will have the chance to showcase your brand, share exciting projects and opportunities, and engage in meaningful conversations with a diverse pool of candidates who are eager to make their mark in the industry. With a reputation for excellence and strong industry partnerships, Virginia Tech's Department of Computer Science is committed to connecting its CS|Source member companies with the brightest minds in computing.
