Spring semester career and internship fairs at the University of Delaware will begin on Thursday, Feb. 15, from 3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., at the Carpenter Sports Building.
This year, the Career Services Center made some dramatic changes to their Fall Career & Internship Fairs. The event, spanning two days, was hosted in the Little Bob; making the fair more accessible to students who could visit the fair between classes. Between All Majors Day and Engineering and Technology Day, more than 2000 students were able to meet and network with more than 200 employers. The Office of Alumni Relations was also on site providing free LinkedIn headshots in the Carpenter Sports Building.
If you missed out on these Fall events do not fear. There are many events, meetups, and fairs scheduled for the spring semester. View the list below and visit the Career Services Center websitefor more information and to register.
This spring the All Majors Career & Internship Fair and the Engineering & Technology Career & Internship Fair will be held on the same day at the same location (Carpenter Sports Building). The UD Young Alumni Network will again be offering free LinkedIn headshots.
Students are encouraged to download the Career Fair App by searching for “Career Fair Plus” in the app store. The app provides a complete floor map and tips for career preparation and networking. Additionally, the app offers a full list of employers and allows students to filter by the major or industry of interest and find specialized job and internship opportunities. And as always, all participants are encouraged to share their fair experiences on social media using #UDSpringFair.
