Career Fairs


Please note, in an effort to be green, Career Development will not be printing a large quantity of the Career Fair 2015 brochure.  If you would like to ensure you have the floor plan and list of employers attending, we highly recommend you print a copy or view on your mobile device.  Click here for a PDF of the final brochure!

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 - just attend and come prepared!
