Recruitment activities include job fairs, recruitment tables, and special presentations. We encourage you to check our Event Calendar frequently as new activities are scheduled throughout the academic year.
Job Fairs and Recruitment Tables – Career Services organizes a large job fair every spring that attracts employers from a wide range of industries. This event provides a great opportunity to network, apply for jobs, and learn about career paths.
