Information Sessions / Tech Talks
BYU plays host to companies who want to communicate their name and mission to prospective employees. Your company is invited to schedule campus rooms and services for information sessions and tech talks. Career Placement Services will also publicize the event to the types of students you are looking for. If you are interested in setting up an information session, please send your request to Allie Sensinger at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Talmage Building Booths
Companies may advertise internship and employment opportunities to ACME students by setting up a table in the first-floor foyer of the Talmage Building for up to five hours on a given day. There is no charge for this, but we encourage companies to make a generous donation to the ACME Math Scholarship fund. Available dates and times are limited. Only one or two companies may have a booth on any given day. If you are interested in participating in an event of this type, please contact the ACME Department Secretary at ACMEasst@math.byu.edu.
Many of our clubs offer opportunities for companies to sponsor and/or be involved with club events. This is a great way to get face-time with our students (since we do not allow recruiting in classes). If you are interested in participating in an event of this type, please contact the the ACME Department Secretary at ACMEasst@math.byu.edu.
Individuals involved in Mathematics and computer science industry are often asked to give students an inside look at career possibilities in the industry. Presenters are invited to tell students about their jobs and what it is like to work at their company. They also acquaint students with relevant issues in the market. Presentation slots are limited and fill up in advance, but if you are interested in making a presentation, please contact Allie Sensinger at email@example.com to schedule your seminar for the 2024-2025 school year.
Every week during the academic school year, noted researchers come to present their groundbreaking research in the field. If you are interested in presenting at a research colloquium, please contact Dr. Tyler Jarvis.
Resume Writing Sessions
As students prepare for the bi-annual career fairs, the department or college may hold resume writing sessions where recruiters and alumni come and help students prepare their resume. The session allows students to get an idea of what recruiters look for in a resume and recruiters and alumni get an opportunity to mentor. Contact Heidi Jarvis at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in participating in a resume writing session.
Mock interviews give students an opportunity to experience the kinds of questions and problems that they will have to answer in an interview for programming occupations. Students learn to think on their feet and apply the principles that they have learned in their classes in front of a recruiting expert. The interviews last 30 minutes apiece and recruiters are given the opportunity to ask questions they deem appropriate. Students are then given a short debriefing period where the recruiter advises them on what they can do better. If you are interested in participating in the mock interviews, contact Contact Heidi Jarvis at email@example.com.
