Seattle Times reporter visits UW CSE recruiting fair, lives to tell the tale

Recruiting fairSeattle Times reporter Rachel Lerman stopped by the Paul G. Allen Center for Computer Science & Engineering on Wednesday to witness firsthand the magic and the mayhem that is established company recruiting day for UW CSE students.

As she notes in her article, “It was nearly impossible to walk unimpeded through the huge atrium of the University of Washington’s computer science building Wednesday. The space had been taken over by dozens of booths run by companies hungry for engineering talent, and hundreds of students were there to meet with recruiters.”

As CSE’s external relations director, Kay Beck-Benton, pointed out for the article, the event has expanded to the point that the atrium is full to overflowing — with another dozen companies recruiting in another room on the 6th floor — and still we have a waiting list.
