Aside from attaining knowledge itself, most students attend college to find a path forward in their lives, searching for a career that suits them. At the Engineering Career Fair, that job is made easier as company representatives from the Houston area drop in to offer opportunities, mentor students and share stories of how they went from being a college student to a company employee.

The Cullen College hosts two such fairs annually, most recently the spring event with 76 employers and 1,500 students attending.

“The feedback from the students and employers was fantastic,” said Janice Quiroz Perez, director of the Cullen College’s Engineering Career Center. “The fairs continue to grow and shine a light on the quality of the talent we offer at the Cullen College.”
