Professional and Technical Career Fair

This page has information for employers. Students and alumni should visit How to Prepare for a Career Fair.

Recruit for co-ops, internships, and full-time permanent positions at one of UC’s largest recruiting events of the year. In a typical year, more than 1,700 students attend each day.

For Fall 2021, we are planning an in-person fair with three expo days, plus optional interviews on site in the late afternoon and early evening. We will also have a virtual day for all industries/all majors, using Handshake. The date of the virtual fair will be announced soon.

Post-Fair Interviews

Employers may conduct interviews on site the same day or come back the next day, as you wish. You will be asked to reserve interview tables in advance. If you want to do same-day interviews and need more time to sort resumes, you may schedule interviews to start later than 3 p.m. Of course, you may also choose to do virtual interviews independent of this schedule. We are just making the space available to you to use as you wish.


If social distancing is required, we will use both the Campus Rec Center gymasium and Tangeman University Center Great Hall. If social distancing is not required, we should be able to accommodate all exhibitors in the Campus Rec Center gymnasium.
