Career services staff, faculty and other partners on campus can do a lot to help promote the Fall Career & Internship Fair and help students get ready for the event. Use the resources below to post in student areas or share digitally. Please also share this website with students.
When should you promote the Fair? Glad you asked. For the fall, mid-August all the way through to the date of the Fair is a good window for general promotion.
