Do I have to go for the entire time?
No! The Career & Internship Fair runs between 3 PM and 6:00 PM and you are welcome to arrive at any time and leave at any time. We know you are busy with classes, meetings, internships, etc so this timeframe is designed to allow you to stop by whenever it is most convenient for you.
What organizations will come to the fair?
A variety of government, not-for-profit, and for-profit organizations will attend the fair. Graduate schools will also be in attendance. Some organizations will be looking for full-time hires, some will be looking for interns, and some will be looking for both. See the bottom of this page to see the organizations that have registered and the majors/ positions they are seeking- the attending organizations will be updated about once a week starting in early February.
What majors are invited to the fair?
ALL majors and class years are invited! Whereas some organizations seek specific majors for their opportunities, a majority of organizations seek students from ALL majors.
Do I need to dress up?
Yes. Seniors are expected to be in business attire (suits). Underclassmen may attend in business casual dress- no jeans, sneakers, tee shirts, or sweats.
Do I need a resume?
A resume is not required to attend, but if you are seeking a job or internship, you will need a resume.
What should I expect?
Do your homework on the organizations that will be attending so you know who you would like to meet with beforehand. Then expect to have just a few minutes to chat with someone from that organization.
