Career Fairs

In an effort to be green, Career Development will not print copies of Career Fair 2014 or 2015 brochures. When these brochures are finalized, please print a copy or view on your mobile device. You will also be able to view a list of registered organizations, again, when finalized.

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!

Northeastern Students:  Northeastern ID is required for admission.
