    Students

    Student Registrations

    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 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. 

    In order to participate, students will need to complete their profile on Handshake, the comprehensive online career and internship resource offering powerful search tools and alerts. IUP students and alumni are provided with a free account, giving you access to more than 1 million jobs posted by 200,000 companies, nonprofit groups, and government organizations nationwide to help you find jobs that best fit your skills and interests.

    Employers

    The IUP Career Expo and Graduate School Fair 2020 offers employers with full-time and part-time entry-level, internship, and co-op positions an opportunity to meet with alumni, graduating students, and upperclassmen. Candidates attending will be IUP current students or graduates of the university with associate, bachelor, and/or graduate degrees. Employers will be able to speak with candidates, discuss their organizations, and conduct brief interviews.

    Please note: Organizations registering for the fall career fairs must have an account set up on Handshake. Career fair registration will be required through Handshake, and registration fees will be accepted through Marketplace.

    Our Graduate School Fair is the perfect opportunity for universities to recruit undergraduate students and alumni who are considering graduate school. IUP offers more than 140 majors for undergraduates and more than 60 master’s and doctoral programs, so you’re sure to recruit quality, motivated students from programs you’re seeking.
