Career fairs are a great way to meet representatives from different types of organizations, learn about internships and full-time positions, and discover exciting opportunities within a career field. Fairs are open to students from Cornell.

Cornell Career Services hosts multiple career fairs of various size and scope throughout the academic year. Our flagship fair, Cornell Career Days - Explore and Pursue, 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 Career Days - Explore and Pursue, 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.
