On Wednesday March 20th Haley Dominique and I joined forces to represent SAP at the University of Illinois Chicago Analytics Career Fair.
The event was be open to Information & Decision Sciences, MIS, and Business Analytics students. There was a diverse mix of graduating seniors and graduate students in attendance since this event was attached to an analytics symposium on the same day. Haley and I were so busy at the SAP table we had to stay an extra half hour to accommodate all the students wishing to speak with us. We set a record by welcoming over 100 students into the SAP talent community online where they can explore both internship and full-time opportunities.
