We’ve partnered with Handshake to create a Career Fair that provides employers with a strategic and highly flexible experience. Here's how it works:

  • Curate the experience you’ve always wanted. Create your own schedule so students can sign up to speak with you. 
  • Don't want to use 1:1 sessions? Create back-to-back Group Sessions to function like a Drop-In room. Your recruiting schedule is completely up to you.
  • Instantly download student resumes. As soon as a student requests an appointment with your company their resume is immediately accessible to you. 
  • Get help from the experts. An Engineering Career Services staff member can help you set up and create your career fair schedule.
