At career fairs you have a unique opportunity to meet with employers in an informal setting and learn more about job and internship opportunities offered by companies, government agencies, and non-profit organizations.
Some employers and fairs are focused on students from specific majors, but many are interested in students from a broad range of disciplines.
Why going to career fairs?
