Advertising positions: The Career Fair is an event in which students learn about full-time and internship opportunities. If your organization is not offering one or both of these types of positions, please post your available positions on Handshake and consider connecting with students in other ways.

The following types of organizations are limited to participation on a waiting-list basis; if space is available after a fair or event registration deadline is reached, organizations representing any of the following categories may be permitted to participate in the event.

  • Employers offering commission-only based positions.
  • Graduate School programs. 
  • Employers sponsoring an individual to set up his/her own business for the purpose of selling products or services and/or recruiting other individuals to set up their own business.
  • Employers requiring an initial investment from this individual, with the organization itself serving as an umbrella or parent corporation. The initial investment may be direct payment of a fixed fee, payment to attend an orientation or training session, and/or purchase of a starter kit.
  • Third-Party Recruiters

The Armed Forces
Virtual Career Fairs - will be permitted to attend and will agree to pay $150 registration fee.
