Upcoming Career Fairs

Post-Graduate Planning and Experiential Education will host one in-person networking event and two virtual career fairs during the fall 2021 semester. Whether you are looking for an internship, a full-time position, or co-op, attending a career fair is an important part of your search.

Leading up to the fair, employers from a broad range of industries will register to attend and you can monitor the events in Handshake to see which organizations have signed up. Save the fairs as “favorites” in Handshake so you remember to sign up once student registration opens Aug. 16.

Benefits of Attending

When you attend a career fair, you will learn about jobs and meet with employers who are hiring. The career fair is a great opportunity to learn what employers need.

Regardless of your major, year in college, or future goals, there are numerous benefits to attending a career fair. Career fairs provide opportunities to:

  • Get first-hand information about a company/organization from a representative. You're likely to get more valuable and accurate information from an employee than you could ever get from a web site.
  • Make a positive and lasting impression with employers. Begin to establish your professional image by distinguishing yourself from other candidates.
  • Effectively practice professional communication with recruiters and other future colleagues.

To get you ready, we've provided some tips on preparing for a career fair.
