Event Format 

Unlike a typical open career fair, the Expo is divided into three segments: 

1) Round Tables - employers will present their company and programs to groups of students in three 20 min. rotations 
2) One-on-One Conversations - students will sign up on arrival to talk with company reps in 15 min. one-on-one sessions 
3) Open Networking - students can talk to any employer

Student Attendees

The Expo is open to undergraduates (sophomores, juniors, & seniors) as well as business graduate students. However there is a strong emphasis on seniors seeking FT positions post-graduation and on juniors and sophomores seeking internships. While it is open to all majors we strongly recommend the event for those in Management, Finance, Marketing, Economics, Math, Computer Science/IT, and Communications. 

Professional dress and RSVP are both required! Students need to RSVP via CareerLink in order to attend the event.
