Job & Internship Fairs

Attending a Fair

At a fair, you can discover a job you didn't know existed, learn which skills you need for specific positions, and network with a variety of companies. At the same time, employers can learn more about who you are and how you could fit in with their company. 

You can learn more about which companies are attending each fair and register in Handshake. Check out our Tips for Fair Success for how to make the most of your experience.
