The University of Delaware Career Services Center will host its annual Fall Career and Internship Fair from 3:30-6:30 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 21, and Thursday, Sept. 22, at the Bob Carpenter Center.
This is the first year the Fall Career and Internship Fair is divided between two days. The first day is geared toward students interested in pursuing careers in engineering, science and technology. The second day is aimed at students interested in business, public service and humanities-related career opportunities.
The fair is designed to help students identify full-time, part-time, internship or volunteer opportunities for the upcoming summer. It is open to students of all majors and degree levels within the University community.
As the largest career event at the university, there are traditionally more than 1,700 students in attendance.
The fair is expected to draw over 250 employers, many of them UD alumni eager to help students gain essential professional experience.
Students are encouraged to download the UD Career Events app to gain access to a full list of employers, a map of the fair layout, and more relevant information.
It is recommended that students dress professionally and come equipped with multiple copies of their resumes.
Employers participating in the fair include but are not limited to: DuPont, J.P. Morgan Chase and Co., Agilent Technologies, Air Products and Chemicals Inc., Enterprise Holdings, Target Corporation, Vanguard, Belfint Lyons and Shuman P.A., PwC, the United States Army and Wawa.
