What are the CICs?

What are the Career and Internship Connections (CICs)? 

  • CICs are career events in NYC, DC, and Boston held over the January break. Please note: 2018 will host a single, central event in New York City, and will not have events in Boston or DC. Employers from Boston and DC may participate in the NYC event, and students interested in working in Boston and DC should consider attending.
  • The events have a morning career fair open to all undergraduates from the consortium schools and afternoon pre-arranged interviews (that you apply for AHEAD of time – by 11/27/17).

    New York City – January 8, 2018
    New York Hilton Midtown

Why should I go?

  • Many of these employers will not be traveling to your home campus, but will be happy to meet with you in their local city. These events are an excellent opportunity to network and interview face-to-face with prospective internship and full-time employers.

How is the day organized?

  • The days are broken up into TWO parts – A morning career fair (9:00 or 9:30am-11:30am) open to all students from consortium schools and afternoon interviews (12:30-5pm).
  • During the morning career fair, ALL students (with or without interviews) can connect with employers to obtain information about their organization and available internships and full-time job opportunities.
  • There is also the possibility that a recruiter will offer you an interview and add you to their schedule based on these morning interactions, so bring your resume to distribute.
  • It’s always recommended to apply for interviews in advance!

What should I wear/bring?
Business formal attire is expected for interviews. This includes a suit for both women and men. Bring additional copies of your most updated resume in a portfolio or nice folder. Please consult with your school’s Career Center staff member if you have further questions.

How do I get there?
Some students fly, drive, carpool, take the bus or train. Public transportation is available in each metropolitan area once you arrive.

Is there transportation to the event(s)?
Most Career Centers do not provide transportation to the event, but some schools do coordinate options. Check to determine your school’s offerings and remember, it is most likely your responsibility to arrange transportation to the event. Visit the locations page for directions and other transportation information.

Where do I stay?
Transportation, lodging, and food for the CICs are your responsibility. We suggest shopping around for hotel discounts, staying with friends, or sharing the cost of the hotel room with a friend. If you decide to fly in on the day of the event and have an afternoon interview, please plan to check-in at the student registration table by noon. If you do have major concerns or questions, check with your school’s Career Center.
