Career Fairs

Please note that career fairs are open to the students served by the Career Services office.

Fall 2020 Career Fairs

Given the expected ban on large gatherings for Fall 2020, the University of Pennsylvania has decided to move to a virtual format. The health and safety of our students and employer partners is of the highest concern to all of us, and we are confident that virtual fairs will provide an excellent avenue for students and employers to connect. Penn will be using the Handshake career fair platform as it will provide many benefits including the following:

    • A familiar and integrated platform which students and employers already use for job listings, information sessions and campus interviews
    • Flexible communication options including video, audio, and text
    • Various ways to connect:
      • Pre-scheduled 1:1 appointments if the employer has been engaging with students ahead of the fair
      • Group sessions during the fair that help students learn about the companies they are interested in
      • On-the-spot 1:1 appointments during the fair that allow students to form more meaningful connections with recruiters
    • Ability for employers to customize their “booths” similarly to how they customize their Handshake profiles today

Note that we are currently in the process of converting our career fair registration forms to accommodate the virtual format.  We encourage interested employers to register as soon as possible, but will not be approving and invoicing career fair registrations until after July 1.
