*Employers who previously attended CareerFIRE (Finance, Insurance & Real Estate) are encouraged to attend this event! CareerLink will provide the opportunity to speak informally with highly-qualified students interested in learning about your organization and collect resumes from interested students. The fair is attended by undergraduates from Wharton, College of Arts and Sciences, and Engineering, as well as a variety of non-MBA graduate students. Students seeking post-graduate positions and sophomores and juniors seeking internships will attend.

What is the format?

All career fairs in the autumn of 2021 will be virtual at Penn. The health and safety of our students and employer partners is of the highest concern to all of us, and we are confident that a virtual fair 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:

  • Up to 100 representatives may participate in the event!
  • Various ways to connect with students including:
    • Pre-scheduled ten minute 1:1 appointments that allow students to form more meaningful connections with recruiters during the fair
    • Up to 20 thirty minute group sessions that help students learn about your company
    • Ability for employers to customize their “booths” similar to how they customize their Handshake profiles

Employers with specific opportunities can identify these during the registration process by linking their registrations to jobs they have posted on Handshake, and these will be highlighted in pre-event outreach and marketing to students and postdocs interested in attending the fair.
