Facebook Team Holds Recruiting Session

Facebook Visit

This semester, a team of engineers and recruiters from Facebook visited Prairie View A&M University’s Computer Science Department in the Roy G. Perry College of Engineering. They held an information session and collected resumes from nearly 200 computer science and computer engineering majors.

“Facebook is eager to fill a number of summer internship and full-time job positions. I saw many follow-up emails between the FB team and students, so the outlook seems very promising,” said Computer Science Professor and Department Head Yonggao Yang. “Having top Silicon Valley companies visit us and recruit our students is very important to motivate our students. It also allows faculty to work harder and better prepare our students for these competitive high-tech jobs.”

According to Yang, Facebook chose only two HBCUs to visit nationwide this spring, and PVAMU was one of the two.
