Career Services is transitioning to industry-based career fairs this spring to allow for more companies to attend and make connections with more students. This decision was based on the high-quality feedback from employers, students, and alumni at our past career fairs. These events will take place on Wednesday, February 22 and Thursday, February 23 from noon–4 p.m. in Hermann Hall.
February 22: computer science, information and industrial technology, business services, government organizations, non-profits, military, and search firms
February 23: engineering, architecture, and natural sciences
See the full list of companies attending the Career Fairs here.
Students, make sure to talk to your professors about your class schedule so that you can attend.

- Made an account in Jobs4Hawks?
- Updated and uploaded your resume?
- Updated your LinkedIn profile?
- Prepared and rehearsed an introduction?
