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 spring the A_LAB hosts an on-campus career fair to give students and alumni the opportunity to connect with recruiters from over 40 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 2017 career fair will be held on Wednesday March 29, 12:00-2:00 pm in the Turner Lynch Campus Center with over 50 employers in attendance.
On-Campus Grad School Fair
The 2016 graduate school fair was held on Thursday, October 20, 2016, 12:00-2:00 pm in the Turner Lynch Campus Center.
