Our campus hosts a number of career fairs each year. These are a great way for you to:

  • make contact with multiple employers at one time,
  • learn about organizations and opportunities in your field, and
  • hopefully be invited for an in-person interview.

If you think of the 2-3 minute exchange with an employer at a career fair as a mini job interview, you can prepare for it accordingly.

Accommodations for the career fair are available. Specific accommodations should be requested at least 2 weeks prior to the career fair by contacting the University Career Center at ucc-studenthelp@umd.edu.

For each in-person fair, please note individual registration suggestions; students are welcome regardless of advance registration. For virtual fairs, registration is required on Handshake.

(If you are an employer looking for information about upcoming fairs, please go to our Employer Fairs page.)
