IUP Career Expo

  • Wednesday, September 30, 2015
    Time: 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.

    Location: Kovalchick Convention and Athletic Complex


    Don’t miss out on this opportunity to meet representatives from local and national companies and organizations. Employers will be looking for individuals for full-time positions, as well as internships and co-ops. The Career Expo also provides you an opportunity to explore employers and career opportunities that you may have never thought about. Participating also provides you with an opportunity for face-to-face contact with recruiters and a chance to polish your networking skills (no matter how brief your contact). Although the Career Expo is primarily intended for IUP juniors and seniors of all majors, freshmen and sophomores may also attend to get a general idea of what a career fair entails, as long as they are dressed appropriately.

    Upperclassmen and alumni are encouraged to take the time to prepare a resume and bring multiple copies (30 to 40) with you. Professional dress is required.

    To help you prepare for the Career Expo, view our tips on writing a resume, job fairs, and interviewing.

    Registration includes a table with piping, draping, and a table cloth; directory listing (if registered by September 18, 2015); as well as beverages and a light lunch. You are responsible for bringing your own equipment, such as A/V equipment, and extension cords.
