Career Fairs and Startup Expo


Northeastern’s Co-op and Career Development Career Fairs provide the ideal venue to build and maintain your brand on our campus. The fairs also allow you to connect with students who are exploring full-time, co-op or internship opportunities. To make the most of our Career Fairs, we are in the process of creating a guide titled, “Helpful Tips” to ensure your time at our fair is productive and a positive experience.

Traditionally, the fall fair (held in early October) and spring fair (held in early February) have drawn over 2,200 students and alumni from all majors, as well as over 400 employers, including government and non-profit agencies.
