Career and Internship Connections: It's NOT Too Late!!

You may still attend the Morning Career Fair!

What is the Morning Career Fair?

From 9:30 - 11:30 am, there is an OPEN FORUM IN ALL FOUR CITIES! This is a time for you to meet employers and network the room. Why bother, you ask?

  • Several employers at each event will be building their interview schedules purely from the students they meet in person that day!
  • At each event more than 75 additional interviews are added to employer's schedules during the open forum.
  • Employers have already indicated it's been very hard for them to pick only 8 students per schedule! They're still interested in you, and this is a great way to get some "face time" and get YOUR resume in their hands. Having a face to associate with a name, and a few minutes of conversation about their company will make you that much more memorable. 

Why should I register?

During the holidays, updated information about new employers and event details will only be sent out to registrants. The registration process only takes a few minutes, and lets you view employer profiles, job postings and much more.
