Super-size your Career Fair experience

We recognize that career fairs can be intimidating and difficult to navigate. Whether you’re a freshman, who’s attending to “window shop” and gain an initial understanding of the fair, or a senior looking to find the ideal first job, we want to make the career fair experience fun and meaningful for both students and employers.

We created a unique referral initiative to encourage fraternity and sorority members to make the most of the career fair experience. It’s more than just a referral, it’s our invitation to leverage each opportunity and take your career planning to an exciting level.
