Employers are looking for students from all majors, and all class years. Students are encouraged to check their email for the full list of employers.
"While recruiters will be looking to hire interns and higher level alumni, they also want to connect with freshmen and sophomores to start to build their talent pool for the future," said Reesa Greenwald, director of The Career Center.
Prior to the Career Fair, students are encouraged to speak with a career advisor, stop by The Career Center (Bayley Hall, Room 209) to have their resumes critiqued as well as to get tips on networking.
The Career Center will host "Resume Critique and Interview Skills Walk-In" sessions on Thursday, September 14, 1 p.m. - 4 p.m. and again on Friday, September 15, 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. in Bayley Hall.
On the day of the Career Fair, "Pirate Mentors" will be on hand to answer questions and provide guidance on how best to navigate the fair and locate employers of interest.
Students should dress professionally and bring plenty of resumes.
