UConn Career Fair Returns In-Person
Dear UConn Faculty and Staff,
We’re excited to share that our career fair will return to an in-person format again this fall, and we’re asking for your help in making sure students are aware of this opportunity. This is a noteworthy occasion to return to an in-person career fair, following nearly two years on hiatus due to the pandemic.
The Center for Career Development is hosting the in-person career fair at Gampel next week, Tuesday, September 21 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. We currently have 102 employers representing all industries and hiring all majors that are planning to attend the event and hire UConn students for internships and full-time roles.
We know there are also many employers working and recruiting virtually; to accommodate their needs we’re hosting a virtual career fair the following week, September 28, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. via our online career platform, Handshake. We have more than 100 employers registered for the virtual fair, again representing all industries and all majors. Students are able to conduct 10-minute 1:1 sessions and attend half-hour info sessions in this virtual setting.
Please help us make these events a success by encouraging your students to attend both fairs; there will be different employers at each event. Many of you know that the majority of our employers are hiring now for next summer’s interns and full-time staff, and will have their hiring completed by Thanksgiving. Please share this information with your students. Students across all of our campuses are welcome to attend both events.
Your support of our students in their career exploration is deeply appreciated.
Vice Provost for Faculty, Staff and Student Development
