Lobby Hours with Cisco

10:00 AM - 02:00 PM
Willie A. Deese College of Business and Economics

Attending Lobby Hours is beneficial for a range of reasons that aren’t limited to getting a job or internship offer. While that may be the end goal, there are plenty of other opportunities to be found at these events including practicing your elevator speech, getting your resume critiqued, and learning more about job opportunities at specific companies. Lobby Hours can also provide insight into industries and companies that you might not have considered previously.

Tips for a successful Lobby Hours experience: (1) Conduct some preliminary research on the company. (2) Attend earlier in the morning to increase your chances of having more one-to-one time with the company representatives. (3) Have your 60-second elevator speech rehearsed and ready. (4) Bring a copy of your resume to provide to the company representative. (5) Dress in business casual or business professional clothes.

And don’t forget … things like strong eye contact, a pleasant smile, and professional, confident body language help communicate to recruiters your readiness for the workplace.

The Cisco Life, Intern Style

Cisco interns are a fun, unique bunch. Ready to absorb knowledge, and go back to school with their brains full and their hearts looking forward to coming back to the We Are Cisco tribe either for another internship, or as a full-fledged Cisconian.

While they’re at Cisco, they do real work with real technology alongside really cool people (their words.)
