Cornell University

Career Fair and Events

Cornell Career Services hosts multiple career fairs of various size and scope throughout the academic year. Our flagship fair, the University-Wide Career Fair Days, provides a forum for 6,000 plus Cornellians to meet with employers over a two-day period each year. A wide variety of employers attend, ranging from Fortune 500 companies to government and not-for-profit organizations. Organizations attend Cornell University's Career Fair Days to increase visibility, to illustrate the benefits of employment in their organization, and to provide information to Cornell students about entry-level jobs, co-op opportunities, and internships. Many Employers also participate in Cornell's On-Campus Recruiting Program and use the University-Wide Career Fair Days as a kick-off for their recruiting season. Others attend to introduce Cornell students to their organization; some collect resumes for future openings. We also host additional industry focused fairs as noted below.
