Career fairs sponsored by the Office of Experiential Learning (OEL) and other academic departments offer excellent opportunities for candidates of all academic classifications to network with employers in different career fields.
In addition to providing general information, employers may discuss opportunities for internships, cooperative education positions (co-ops), or professional employment. Candidates will have the advantage of initiating job searches at a convenient location where many employers will be present. Students can distribute resumes and learn about career opportunities for current and future positions. Freshmen through alumni are invited to participate as well as any member of the community.
The OEL offers six programs annually to provide candidates with a variety of employment areas and career paths. Employers range from Fortune 500 companies to non-profit, local, and regional employers along with federal and state agencies.
Prepare for the fairs!
