Participating in a career fair can be an effective way to [quickly] expand your network, learn about different occupations and industries, and possibly land an interview for a job or internship. Our office hosts four major fairs throughout the year, which are listed below.
It is important to remember that though career fairs can be an important tool in your career planning or job search, they are not a "magic bullet" - if you do nothing else in your job/internship search except show up at a career fair, it's unlikely that you'll find a lot of opportunities.
The key to making attending a career fair worthwhile is the preparation you put in beforehand. On the left, you'll find tips and advice on how to make the best of your career fair experience.
