Reverse Career Fair

An event for FEAS and FESNS Students. 

The Engineering Reverse Career Fair is an event for FEAS and FESNS Students only, who are interested in co-op or internship opportunities, or 2020 graduates getting a head start on finding a job for when they graduate. Did you know that employers start recruiting now for students who are graduating in 2020?

To be eligible for the reverse careeer fair you must:
  • Be in 2nd year or above. (First year students are encouraged to volunteer for the event!)
  • Be a FEAS or FESNS Student 

How it works:

The Reverse Career Fair is different than your traditional Career Fair, employers are there to talk to you, not the other way around! To participate, you will set up a booth and hand out resume's. You are encouraged to bring a project or display which is a great way to start a conversation and show employers what you are passionate about. We have over 40 employers registered already who will walk around the gym and chat with you. It is a great opportunity to gain interview experience, discover employers you hadn't heard of before, and make professional connections.

New this year, employers will have the opportunity to schedule interviews right after the Reverse Career Fair!
