Looking to connect? WFU Career Fair Sept. 11

Wednesday, September 11 • 12pm – 4pm • Sutton Center (in the new rec center!)

The Details

Career Fairs are an opportunity to see a lot of potential employers in one place and at one time. Don’t miss your next opportunity to network and engage recruiters on campus. The career fair is September 11 in the new Recreation Center on Reynolda Campus – the Sutton Center.  You can research the employers who plan to attend and what kind of positions they are recruiting for by reviewing the registrants in Handshake. Take a moment to review the Employer List.

This is highly recommended so you can decide how much time to allot to attending the fair, prepare in advance with whom you will speak, and determine what version of your resume or CV would be best to bring and share.

  • Be open to speaking with other companies you didn’t plan for. 
  • Develop and practice a strong pitch to introduce yourself.
  • Take care of yourself! Get a good rest the night before and eat breakfast.
