Company and student registration is now open! Click here to register.

For Employers:
Company registration is due August 31st. Due to space constraints, only selected companies from the registrants pool will be invited to the banquet. The SWE Career Fair Banquet selection is based on company's diversity, positions recruiting for, and company reputation. Sponsorship level is considered but not the main priority. Selected companies will be notified the first week of September. There will be no cost for invited companies.

In addition to the registration form, please email your resume to swe-resume@mit.edu. Applicants who do not submit resumes will not be considered. Both registration and resumes are due no later than September 7th.

Due to space restrictions we cannot accommodate all students registrants at this event. Selected students will be notified in the 2nd week of September. Students who are selected, but are unable to attend must notify the SWE CR team (swe-cr@mit.edu) within 5 days of invitation or be subject to a $10 fine. The dinner itself is offered at no cost to attendees.
