Upcoming Career Services Events

Employers

We hope that our career fairs are just one of the hiring strategies that you will select from the services we have to offer. If you are interested in learning more about our campus recruiting program, posting an internship, or posting a full-time, part-time or temporary job, please contact our staff.

Employers must be seeking candidates pursuing at least a bachelor’s degree and must have, or expect to have, viable internships, full-time permanent or professional positions available.
