 Internship and Career Fairs & Networking with Employers


Connect and network with a multitude of employers on campus who have opportunities for full-time and part-time employment as well as Internship positions. Networking is the number one way people get jobs. Make sure to connect with every employer, every time they’re on campus.

A fair is one such opportunity. We host the Hire Warriors Internship and Career Fair in the fall semester. During the spring, we host the Hire Warriors Internship and Career Fair and the Education & Non-Profit Fair. Employers are frequently on campus throughout the year. Follow us on Facebook & Hire Warriors for real-time up to date information.
