Hire computer science professionals with core technical abilities, transferable skills, and broad perspectives. Penn’s MCIT Online program offers an extensive pool of talent for internships, entry-level jobs, and more senior positions in the CS field and beyond. 

Our students have an average of seven years of work experience across sectors ranging from business and finance, to biomedical engineering, to education. At Penn, they learn to think like engineers and to approach problems in new and creative ways. 

They also graduate with a strong foundation in the fundamentals of computer science, including Java, Python, C, C++, object oriented programming, data structures, J-unit testing, logic, graph theory, low-level code, operating systems programming, dynamic programming, network flows, hardware, and algorithms.

Our students live and work in more than 40 countries. Whether you’re looking to hire in the United States, Canada, China, Singapore, India, the UK, Japan, South Korea or beyond, we can connect you with local talent to meet your needs.

Post a Job 

Post jobs, internships and other opportunities in Handshake, our online recruiting platform, to reach a global pool of highly qualified Penn talent—as well as students from hundreds of other schools. 

Attend an Online Career Fair 

Connect with Penn students and alumni at our free online career fair. This year’s fair will take place on Tuesday, September 21, 2021, through Handshake, our virtual recruiting platform. MCIT Online students do not attend on-campus career fairs, so the virtual version is a great opportunity to connect with this cohort. 

Host a Virtual Recruiting Event 

Showcase your organization and meet potential hires by hosting your own recruiting event. Our team will work with you to customize your event to reach your goals. Options include: 

  • Information sessions
  • Small-group networking session with members of your technical team
  • Technical demos or Tech Talks
  • A “day in the life” session with Penn alumni on your team
  • Resume reviews
  • LinkedIn profile reviews
  • Mock interviews
  • Informal coffee chats

If you plan to host an event with us, please finalize all details at least 10 days before the event so we can publicize it. We’re also happy to promote your multi-school events with our students.
