Many of the representatives are UMBC alumni or part of organizations that have UMBC alumni among their current employees.
All of the organizations who are participating have job openings in a variety of fields, for graduate students in each of our three colleges, spanning Arts, Humanities, Social Sciences, and all STEM fields.
