IUP Career Expo and Graduate School Fair

  • IUP Career Expo
  • Don’t miss out on this opportunity to meet representatives from local and national companies and organizations.

    Students

    Employers will be looking for individuals for full-time positions, as well as internships and co-ops. The Career Expo and Graduate School Fair 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 and Graduate School Fair is intended primarily 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 and Graduate School Fair, view our tips on writing a resume, job fairs, and interviewing.
