Meet exceptional students & alumni at our in-person Job and Internship Fairs, which are widely regarded as the most affordable and well-organized recruiting events in the D.C. area. The Spring 2024 Job & Internship Fair takes place Wednesday, March 27.

Generate buzz about your organization and further build your brand, by hosting virtual or in-person events. Pitch your organization and opportunities to eager candidates. Submit your session request through Handshake and partner with our Employer Relations Coordinator, Caleb Brown, who actively promotes your event to appropriate audiences.

Employer Meet-Ups: These virtual, in-person or simulcasted info sessions run 30-minutes to 1 hour, with a presentation and Q&A format. Share current events and projects with students and pique their interest in applying to jobs and internships.

Employer Pop-Ups: Set up a table in our active student center from 11-2pm T/Th during the semester to showcase your brand to students & alumni. 

Employer-in-Residence: Host pre-scheduled one-to-one appointments in-person or virtually, with interested students & alumni, chats are generally 20 minutes and are a great first step in getting to know candidates and provide industry based advice.
