Career Fairs

Part-Time Job Fair (Fall): To kick off the academic school year, our annual part-time job fair connects students with employers who are recruiting for part-time work, internships, and volunteer opportunities. 

Career Fest (Spring): Our biggest event of the year! Students look forward to our two-day Career Fair which hosts over 150 employers each spring. 

Mini-Fairs: Introducing a new type of Career Fair - the mini-fair! These fairs consist of 10-15 employers every fall and spring semester. 

All registration for Career Fairs takes place via Handshake.

On-Campus Recruiting Opportunities

Pop-Up Recruiting: On a predesignated date, your company can recruit in Seawolf Plaza during the lunch hour. Formerly called “tabling”.

Lunch & Learns: This event is an opportunity for your company to provide an info-session for our students. We ask that you either provide lunch for students or that you work with our team to set up lunch at your expense. Must be scheduled at least one month in advance.
