Career Fairs

The Career Center sponsors two general on-campus career fairs—one during the fall and the other during the spring semester. Our events are open to current and former CWRU students. As a research institution, we host employers seeking to hire candidates at the undergraduate and graduate levels.

Benefits of Attending

When you attend a career fair, you will learn about jobs and meet with employers who are hiring. The career fair is a great opportunity to learn what employers need.

Regardless of your major, year in college, or future goals, there are numerous benefits to attending a career fair. Career fairs provide opportunities to:

  • Get first-hand information about a company/organization from a representative. You're likely to get more valuable and accurate information from an employee than you could ever get from a web site.
  • Make a positive and lasting impression with employers. Begin to establish your professional image by distinguishing yourself from other candidates.
  • Effectively practice professional communication with recruiters and other future colleagues.

To get you ready, we've provided some tips on preparing for a career fair.
