Job and Internship Fairs

The Center hosts job fairs, for all majors, during the fall and spring semesters for students seeking internships and career opportunities. Generally, the fairs are held in September and February and hosted on-campus.

The 2021-2022 academic fairs will be held on Tuesday, September 20, 2022 and Tuesday, February 21, 2023.

Employer Information Sessions

Throughout the entire year, employers host webinars where students can learn more about potential employment opportunities and internships, workplace culture, and what it takes to get hired. These are live sessions with recruiters. Get the inside scoop - the kind of information you will not find on the Internet.
