Don’t miss out on this opportunity to meet representatives from local and national companies and organizations.
Please note: While we are planning for a robust fall career fair season, the health and safety of our students, staff, and employer partners remains our highest priority. We will continue to plan for on-campus events, but we will be abiding by all university policies and guidance relating to large events on campus for the fall, so it is possible that we may need to hold these career fairs virtually. We appreciate your patience as we explore options. Additional information and registrations details will be added in early summer.
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. Students attending
the event are encouraged to wear business or business casual attire, and anyone
dressed inappropriately (sweat pants, dirty shirts, ripped jeans, etc.) will
not be admitted.
Upperclassmen and alumni are encouraged to take the time to prepare a resume and bring multiple copies (30 to 40) with you.
To help you prepare for the Career Expo and Graduate School Fair, view our tips on writing a resume, job fairs, and interviewing.
Prior to entering the career fair, check out the Green Room, where you can have a headshot photo taken, learn about how to introduce yourself to recruiters, and find out what makes a good handshake!
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 in one central location 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, distribute recruitment literature, and conduct brief interviews.
Please check out career fair sponsorship opportunities listed below.
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.
Put your organization in the spotlight while supporting programming and new initiatives for our students! Providing financial resources allows your organization to support activities that benefit IUP students. Your organization will make an impact and
as a result will enjoy an increased level of visibility and branding on campus. Contact Kelsey Thompson by e-mail at K.E.Thompson3@iup.edu, or call 724-357-2235 for more information
