Career Fairs

Career Fairs are great to quickly connect you with a large number of quality University of Utah students and raise your company profile on campus. With several career and student job fairs held annually, you can easily find an event to suit your recruitment needs.

  1. Registration for each fair requires a Handshake account. If you do not have an account, you may create one online and search "University of Utah". Set up a account

CAREER FAIR TIPS FOR EMPLOYERS

Before The Fair
  • You want to ensure your display demonstrates to observers what you do, and what you are looking for.
  • Have brochures on hand, but since we are ensuring a “Green” event, we ask you to please keep paper to a minimum. Certainly use handouts to initiate conversations with students, but do not allow that to be your only presentation.
  • Request interview rooms and information sessions at least two weeks in advance. More Information.
Interacting With Students
  • Students prefer to hear an overall view of what you have to offer.
  • Stand at your exhibit if you are able.
  • Don’t wait for students to approach you, be assertive, while friendly and sincere.
  • Make your booth as interactive and informational as possible. Students do not want to hear, "Go to our website."
After The Fair
  • Respond to all inquiries personally as soon as you can
  • Consider connecting with students by participating in other Career & Professional Development Center programs and events throughout the year.
Hotel & Car Rental

We recommend University Guest House and Enterprise Rent-A-Car.
