Please bring your CUID for an easy registration process. Look for the correct registration table for the fair you want to attend. You will receive a nametag that will list your name, major, and academic standing.

There will also be a listing of which majors each employer is recruiting, and the types of positions they are recruiting for (such as full-time employment, internships). Students are also able to reach this information before attending the Career Fair on ClemsonJobLink. If you want to attend both fairs, please be prepared to justify why you are attending this fair. You will need to register for both events. We will have hand sanitizers located through the fairs. 7

After the FairThank you!

Sending a thank you note through email is a great way to leave a favorable impression and to continue staying in contact with the employers. The Career Fair is a great way to get your resume out to employers. Do not expect to walk out of the fair with a job offer or a possible interview. Your goal is to make connections and be invited back for interviews when they come up in the future. Every connection is a good connection!

Some employers might be conducting interviews the next day and others later on in the semester.
