The Internship and Job Fair is an essential tool for networking, landing an internship, or getting hired for full-time employment! Students of all majors, skill sets, and classes are encouraged to attend. There will be many employers who are ready to network and introduce you to hundreds of valuable internship and job opportunities!
This fair is being offered via our career management platform, Handshake, and via Zoom. On the day of the fair, participants will have the opportunity to meet with employers in both group and 1:1 sessions. In order to participate, you must register for the fair in Handshake and sign up for sessions with employers. Check back in Handshake often as employers can add sessions up until the day of the fair.

On the two days prior to the fair, we will be hosting our Zoom Networking Nights for students to engage with employers in an informal setting. Pop into the Zoom rooms of employers who interest you, learn more about them and their opportunities and utilize what you learn there to register for your group and 1:1 sessions on the day of the fair.
