Hundreds turn out for DECaF career fair
Hundreds of students crowded the Price Center East and West Ballrooms Friday, Feb.20 for the Disciplines of Engineering Career Fair, better known as DECaF, organized by the Triton Student Engineering Council.
This year, students had access to more than 90 companies. Many of them sent UC San Diego alumni to help recruit for internships and full-time positions.
Jeffrey Silverman, who earned a degree in biology here in 1982, was one of them. He is a managing director at San Marcos-based Varioscale, a company that creates cutting edge equipment to support the electronics industry. Silverman said he was back because he was impressed by the work of a hire he made last year at DECaF, Thomas Harper. "He's done a fine job for me. I want to go find more Toms," Silverman said.
