Over 50 employers from a broad range of industries will provide in-depth overviews of their respective organizations and present information about jobs, internships, and volunteer opportunities.

See the Frequently Asked Questions section below for more information.

All Students and Alumni are Welcome!

  • Learn about the duties and qualifications for entry-level positions in health care, business, culinary arts, life sciences, engineering, information technology, criminal justice, human services, education, and more!
  • Learn about company application and hiring processes as well as new employee orientation and training practices.
  • Discover the skills and qualities that employers seek and steps you can take to develop them while in school.
  • Get answers to your questions directly from the decision-makers: company recruiters and hiring managers!

Whether you are undecided on a major or ready to launch your professional career, this event is for you!

What to Expect

Each day will feature 4 one-hour blocks during which up to 4 employers will host virtual information sessions (via Zoom) to introduce their respective organizations and discuss available opportunities, potential career paths, and more. Participants will have ample opportunities to ask questions and network with employers.

Below, we’ve provided the Opportunity Fair Program for the entire event. Click on a day to view the following:

Opportunity Fair Program

Important: Employers may be seeking candidates for positions that are unrelated to the organization’s industry. For example, a hospital may be seeking candidates for IT Help Desk jobs. As such, job seekers are encouraged to check out "Opportunity Titles" for all 4 days. Furthermore, virtually all companies employ positions such as Administrative Assistants, Accountants, IT staff, and others. We encourage you to think about the organization versus industry.

Depending on company needs, representatives will share information about available opportunities such as jobs, internships, and volunteering. Topics may also include career paths for new grads, company culture, the hiring process, new employee on-boarding, and related topics. Representatives may also provide some tips and advice on résumé writing, interviewing, and professional development. We encourage students to ask lots of questions to steer the conversation.

Absolutely! This event will provide a unique opportunity to learn about industries and occupations as well as internships. In fact, these sessions could expose you to occupations that you have never hear of. Employer information sessions have helped many students decide on a major and even a career path.

You may register anytime--right up until the session starts.

All sessions will take place on Zoom. Every session has a unique link, which you’ll receive immediately upon registering for a session. We recommend adding Zoom links to your calendar so they are easily accessible. Alternatively, you may return to the confirmation email to retrieve the link.

Yes. In this case, we recommend downloading the Zoom app from iTunes or the Google Play Store. If possible, we strongly recommend joining from a desktop computer or laptop that has a webcam and microphone. This event provides a unique opportunity to meet and interact with recruiters, and potentially a future employer! As such, you’ll want to make a strong first impression. Putting a face to a name and asking thoughtful questions will go a long way to making a great first impression. Join sessions from a quiet environment where you are unlikely to be interrupted or distracted.

We have asked employers to address this question in their sessions. That said, we will be encouraging employers to post their opportunities in College Central Network (CCN), our online recruitment system. Click here to learn about CCN's features and how you can get started.
