Career/Grad School Fairs

Home/Career Development/Career/Grad School Fairs

All Oglethorpe University students are encouraged to participate in the Career & Internship Fairs and the Graduate School Fair hosted each year. There is 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. Make sure to keep up-to-date with job and internship postings on Handshake! To meet with a career coach, you can attend drop-in times or schedule an appointment on Handshake today!

Featured Employer Fridays

In lieu of career fairs, Career Development has shifted to offering Featured Employer Fridays, where we highlight one employer over Zoom Webinar. We are focused on a specific career field each month.

Students have the opportunity to ask questions and have them answered during the webinar. The webinars will be recorded and made available for view. Please visit Handshake for more event information and zoom links!
