Career Fairs and Startup Expo

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

Here is a sample of the Feb. 2016  EMPLOYER BROCHURE  (in alpha order) that students printed and brought with them the day of the 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.
