CS|Source Membership

Why become a CS|Source Member?

CS|Source member companies have exclusive opportunities to directly engage with computer science students during their membership term. These opportunities allow our employers to get to know the computer science students by meeting with them in a variety of contexts and building relationships that can be significant bridges toward recruiting. 

Beyond our Spring and Fall CS|Source Career Fairs, CS|Source members enjoy invitations to serve on employer panels to discuss industry trends with students, visit with CS student groups, conduct technology and information sessions, engage in professionalism workshops, and many other opportunities. Additionally, CS|Source members are provided with access to our CS|Source JobHub, where they may post open positions within their organization directly to an audience of computer science students, as well as review the resumes of computer science students any time during their membership term.

CS|Source offers its member companies recognition by supporting their branding across our social media platforms, digital displays on campus, and through email correspondence, all of which highlight our member companies as engaging and committed workplaces.

Additionally, member companies are encouraged to share events, opportunities, open positions, etc., with our CS students via our weekly CS|Source "Annoucements and Opportunities" Newsletter, which is shared with all undergradate CS majors, CS minors, and CS graduate students.

In addition to benefitting from its member companies' active role in educating our students beyond the classroom and preparing them for the workforce, CS|Source invests all membership dues in support of students in the Department of Computer Science. CS|Source membership dollars are invested exclusively toward:

  • academic scholarship funding;
  • registration and travel expense for student to attend professional conferences;
  • support for undergraduate student research activities; and
  • stipends for affiliated student groups in CS to develop their own enrichment programming each academic year.
