UW-Seattle Data Science Fall 2021

Participants chat in small groups at an event.

Please join us, Wednesday, October 20th, from 11:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. for this year’s Fall Virtual Recruiting Fair, hosted virtually in Handshake! Multiple UW programs and schools are working together to create this opportunity for graduate students, postdocs, and undergraduates working in data science to connect with companies and research labs looking for permanent employees and summer interns in data science positions.


The Virtual Fall Recruiting Event will give you an exciting opportunity to network with dozens of employers (via 10-minute 1:1 video chats and 30-minute group sessions), who are all looking to recruit UW Seattle students and alumni for full-time, part-time, and internship opportunities. We hope to “see” you there!


Each organization will be able to host 1:1 schedules and up to eight (8) group sessions throughout this four-hour event. 1:1 appointments are 10 minutes long and can have qualifications (school year, major, grad date, work authorization, GPA) applied, if desired. Group sessions are 30 minutes each and can host up to 50 attendees at a time. You and your representatives may choose the times for your 1:1 and group sessions.
