2015 Fall Career & Internship Fair

The 2015 Fall Career & Internship Fair is a one-day event held in our Events Center venue that provides your organization an opportunity to recruit candidates for both full-time and internship positions. This career fair will be sectioned into three areas so that you can target the students that you desire and so that the right students can find you. The three areas will be as follows: Science, Tech & Engineering (for employers with technical roles seeking STEM majors);  Non-Tech (for employers who have non-technical roles and are typically seeking Liberal Arts and Humanities majors); and All Majors (employers who have positions for technical and non-technical majors). In addition to increasing your visibility on our campus, the Fall Career & Internship Fair is our most popular career fair with over 1400 students expected to attend. Our students look forward to networking with your organization’s representatives, learning about the variety of industries present and exploring the assortment of career opportunities. Students from all majors and levels are invited to attend.
