Deadline to Register: Wednesday, February 14, 2024

Note: Employers are most successful with virtual fairs when they register with enough time to set their schedule in the platform so that students can browse and select times to meet. Student registration will begin on Thursday, February 15th. Employers are encouraged to register well before then to ensure adequate time to set their schedules up in the Handshake platform.

Our virtual career fair will provide the opportunity to speak informally with highly-qualified students and postdocs interested in learning about your organization. The fair is attended by students in all of Penn’s undergraduate programs as well as many graduate students, postdocs, and alumni across the university. Candidates seeking post-graduate positions and internships will attend.

This career fair is open to employers from all industries including opportunities for those interested in consulting, communications, consumer products, education, entertainment, finance, government, healthcare, journalism, manufacturing, marketing, media, non-profits, research, real estate, retail, and more.

Participate in this virtual career fair to enjoy these featured advantages:

  • ACCESS TOP TALENT: Penn undergraduate/graduate students and postdocs are driven and engaged, and bring with them a wide and varied skillset
  • ESTABLISH AND MAINTAIN A PRESENCE AT PENN: Build a recruiting pipeline for future candidates by sharing best practices about your hiring and opportunities.

During this virtual event, employers will be able to use the Handshake platform to schedule 1:1 and groups sessions with students, postdocs, and alumni. For more information on the Handshake virtual career fair experiences, please click here.

Employers with specific job opportunities can identify these during the registration process by uploading positions to Handshake, and then easily linking to these during the registration process. These opportunities will be highlighted in the pre-event outreach and marketing to students and postdocs interested in attending the fair.
