Students are encouraged to participate in a number of career fair and graduate school fair events. There’s no substitute for talking to recruiters and school representatives and learning about the work their companies do, and what they look for in prospective new hires and applicants.
On-Campus Career Fair
Every semester the A_LAB hosts an on-campus career and internship fair to give students and alumni the opportunity to connect with recruiters from Atlanta-area companies. Employers from large and small corporations as well as nonprofit organizations attend to find new talent for part time and full time positions, as well as internships. Bring your resume and come network with some of Atlanta’s top employers!
The Fall 2017 Career & Internship Fair will be held on Wednesday September 27th, 12:00 – 2:00 p.m. in the Turner Lynch Campus Center. Be sure to visit Career Development to learn how you can prepare for the fair and a resume review!
