Computer Science Recruiting at University of Wisconsin-Madison
I was admitted to the University of Wisconsin–Madison in the College of Letters and Sciences and want to major in Computer Science. I am currently deciding between Purdue and Wisconsin and was looking for more information on what companies recruit from the school and where students in the past have gone. Purdue and other schools post this information on their website (https://www.cs.purdue.edu/corporate/placement/index.html) but I cannot find this for Wisconsin. The only information I could find was this list (https://www.cs.wisc.edu/the-student-experience/computer-sciences-annual-job-fair/) on the career fair but neither Amazon nor Microsoft is there. I was wondering if this information is posted anywhere else or is this all. Also, any other information that could help me decide would be appreciated.5 replies
