Career Fairs



Please be advised, in an effort to be green, Career Development will not print copies of the Career Fair Brochure (Fall and Spring).  If you would like to ensure you have the floor plan and list of employers attending, we will be uploading a PDF on this page when it is finalized and we highly recommend printing a copy or viewing on your mobile device.  

Click here  to review a PDF of the brochure from the fall 2014 Career Fair and check out the cool video recap below!

A Career Fair is different from a Job Fair.  Not all participating companies will have employment opportunities for college students.  Career Fairs, however, can play a significant role in your job search.

A Career Fair is a great way for you to:

  • Speak with employers to learn about career paths, as well as full-time, internship, or co-op employment opportunities
  • Learn which skills and experiences increase your employment potential and how to better brand yourself to potential employers
  • Build a professional network that may enhance your chances of employment

There is no registration fee or pre-registration required for students.

Please note, ALL Northeastern Students must have  their Northeastern ID for entry to the fair.
