UW Data Science Fair (Info for Employers)

Please join us, Wednesday, October 20th, from 11:30am – 3:30pm 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.
Student registration will open on Wednesday, October 6, 2021.


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!

To participate, there are THREE required steps:

    1. Your Campus Profile on Handshake must be set to “Community” to register and participate fully in this event.
    2. Register for the fair in Handshake.
    3. Sign up for Group Sessions and 1:1 Sessions with employers in advance of the fair.
      • There is not a way to participate in the fair without signing up for employer sessions! Sign-ups are first-come, first-serve.
      • Check back often as new employers and sessions may be added over the coming weeks!
