Information for Students/Alumni

The events are open to all UD students and alumni interested in looking for internships, co-ops and full-time careers. Employers will be seeking candidates from a variety of majors for opportunities with their organizations in cities across the country. 

Identify the fairs that you plan to attend based on the industries you are interested in working in. You are not defined by your major, and may find organizations of interest on all four days. 

Don't forget to...

  • Research the organizations attending to prioritize your list of employers you're interested in connecting to. When viewing registered attendees in Handshake, check back often as employers are added regularly.
  • Update your resume prior to the event and have it ready to share with recruiters during the event.
  • Set up an appointment with a career advisor or attend one of our workshops to help you prepare for the event in advance.
  • Schedule 1:1 appointments with your priority employers, if they offer advance sign up.
  • Check your technology in advance and identify a quiet place with a neutral background for the day of the fairs. 
  • Dress to present your best self.
