Student Union Ballroom, Vallecito Room

Employer registration View registered employers

The Spring Career & Internship EXPO is for students of all majors and years and alumni seeking part-time, full-time, seasonal, internship, or volunteer positions. This event is an opportunity to present yourself professionally to potential employers while showcasing your communication skills. The keys to a successful EXPO experience are preparation and follow-up. Here is a checklist to help you get prepared:

  • Research the list of participating employers through Handshake
  • Get your resume reviewed – schedule an appointment on Handshake before the event!
  • Prepare your 30-second introduction
  • Make sure you dress professionally and have copies of your resume!
  • Don’t forget to ask for business cards at the job fair so you can follow up with thank-you notes/emails.
