Career Fairs and Startup Expo

Career Development does not print hard copies of the Fall and Spring Career Fair Brochure (we want to be as "green" as we can be!).

This Career Fair Fall 2015 Brochure  is an example of what students printed and brought with them the day of the fair.  Being prepared is key, so make sure to check back to this page for updated employer lists for the February Career Fair.


Career Fairs are a great way for you to:

  • Speak with employers to learn about career paths, as well as full-time, internship, or co-op employment positions
  • 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 employment opportunities
  • Participate in Career Fair activities and win cool prizes

This is a FREE event. No pre-registration required for Northeastern students.

ALL Northeastern Students must present their NU ID for entry, if you do not have your NU ID, there is a check-in table where you will be able to sign in and gain access to the fair.
