Fall Career Fair
Fall 2017 Career & Internship Fair:
Wednesday, September 6, 2017, 12:00-4:00pm in the Woodruff Physical Education Center (WoodPEC). Employer registration will open in June 2017 on Handshake.
The Fall Career Fair is an excellent opportunity for students to connect with 80+ employers in one day. Did you know that some employers use the career fair as their primary way to connect with students on campus and select students to interview based on who they meet? Do not miss out on this GREAT opportunity to learn about your career options!
1st & 2nd Year Students:
- Visit employers early to learn about their hiring processes and what skills will help you be more competitive in the hiring process
- Ask for advice! Here's a question you can ask to employers "What can I do now as a 1st year student to make myself more competitive for your company? Are there certain skills you seek or are there certain classes I should take to become better prepared?"
3rd & 4th Year Students:
- Going to the Career Fair can give you a competitive edge of other students who do not attend
- Learn EARLY what you need to do in order to get that full-time job or internship
- Bring several copies of your resume (more than 1 per company)
- Research who is coming to the Career Fair and come with a plan!
- Share information about your background when you introduce yourself to employers. Pro tip: The more you know about the company, the easier it is to figure out what to talk about. If you learn an employer values leadership, bring up student leadership roles when you introduce yourself. Do they need a specific skill? Drop it into your introduction.
Hire US: Connecting a Diverse Workforce with Inclusive Employers
Tuesday, September 5, 7:00-8:30pm in the Cox Hall Ballroom. Employer registration will open in June 2017 on Handshake.
Hire US is an event designed to connect students who have historically faced under representation and/or discrimination in work environments and hiring processes with employers committed to building and supporting a diverse and inclusive workforce. During this event, employers will be invited to connect directly with students of particular populations. Employers will select the student populations in which they would like to connect on the registration form. Please note all employers who registered signed that their organization abides by Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) laws and are open to hiring all students. However, please be aware this event is designed to help employers increase hiring in areas where the business sees opportunity to better increase diverse representation in a specific area of their workforce. You are still welcome to speak with employers who did not select a student population you identify with.
Dress your best! Business casual & business professional attire recommended. Please contact the Career Center if you would like to borrow clothing items from the Emory Clothing Closet.
This event is sponsored by the Emory Career Center, Office of Accessibility Services and departments of the Belonging & Community Justice area of the Center for the Advancement of Student Agency and Advocacy: Center for Women; Office of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, & Transgender Life; and Office of Multicultural Programs & Services.
