Spring 2017 Communication Job & Internship Fair

  • When: Wednesday, February 22, 2017, 10am - 3pm
  • Where: Darrell K. Royal Stadium - The Club, 8th Floor.  Student Check-In will be on the first floor.

What should I wear?

Always dress for the job you want. When looking for that next job or internship, it's imperative that you dress for success. A few guidelines include staying away from athletic wear, shorts, t-shirts and running shoes.  Professional dress is required - no students wearing jeans will be allowed access to the career fair.

We know how bothersome it can be to carry a backpack around during a career fair, so we've got a station that checks in and takes care of that for you -- free of charge!

Our office is here and ready to help you out with one of the most important documents of your professional life. Schedule an appointment with us or drop by walk-in hours (Wed. 2-4 p.m).
