A variety of employers from around the country will be in attendance to meet, network with, and potentially hire talented U of A students for their internships, co-ops and full-time positions.
Students are encouraged to attend the STEM Career Fair to identify employment opportunities, expand their network, polish their interview skills, learn industry information, and gather information about companies. Students may also get their professional photo taken at the fair for free. These photos may be uploaded as a Linkedin profile photo.
On Thursday, Sept. 27, the University Career Development Center will also hosts "Day after Career Fair Interviews." Students may walk away from the career fair with interviews the very next day.

They looked good, and they proved to be blue ribbon peaches.
