Employee Opportunities for the Bobcat Community

The pandemic caused UC Merced to pivot to virtually connecting students and alumni with employers interested in hiring them for internships and full-time jobs.

The three-day event starts on Tuesday, March 15, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Kolligian Library. The event will allow students and alumni to speak to renowned companies about joining their teams.
