Career Fairs

Start your career preparation early by attending career fairs to engage with representatives from various organizations and industries about their open internships and career positions, hiring practices, and the culture of the organization. Employers participate at career fairs to recruit Cal State East Bay students and alumni for jobs and internships. Academic Advising and Career Education (AACE) hosts and supports many career fairs throughout the year to help students learn more about job and internship opportunities offered by companies, government agencies, and non-profit organizations.

Don't miss these events, whether looking for a job or internship, exploring different career options, or networking with representatives. Current students may log into Handshake to view a list of the employers of most upcoming fairs.

Be sure to arrive at the fair prepared. Check out the Make the Career Fair Work for You Guide-to-Go for helpful hints. Learn more about virtual career fairs with Make the Most of a Virtual Career Fair
