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. Dress to impress and bring your resume to network with some of Atlanta’s top employers!

Thanks to all who joined us for the Spring 2020 Career & Internship Fair! We look forward to having you back for Spring 2021!

Be sure to connect with Career Development on Instagram and LinkedIn to learn how you can prepare for future fairs, stay in the know about job-seeker best practices/success stories and keep track of upcoming events!
