OUR Clemson; Student Affairs

Fall Career Fair scheduled Sept. 20-22 at Littlejohn Coliseum


Michelin Career Center — part of the Center for Career and Professional Development (CCPD) — is coordinating Clemson University’s Fall Career Fair from Sept. 20-22 at Littlejohn Coliseum. More than 400 prospective employers are confirmed for the fairs and many more recruiters will come to Clemson’s main campus to conduct follow-up interviews with students as well.

“We are excited that Career Fair season is here in Clemson,” said Andrea Franklin, who oversees employer relations and recruiting in the CCPD. “We are at maximum capacity for employer registrations with a long waitlist, which means there is an incredibly high amount of interest in connecting with our students!”

The fair runs from noon-4 p.m. each day. Students are asked to enter through Burton Gallery, located on the southeast corner of the coliseum. The full fair breakdown is below:

Tuesday, Sept. 20
Noon-4 p.m.
Technologies, Manufacturing, Engineering and Science (Day 1)

Wednesday, Sept. 21

Clemson was recently named No. 1 in the nation for career services by The Princeton Review, its fourth such ranking since 2016. Last year, the CCPD conducted more than 28,000 total contacts with students and saw in advance of 5,000 attend the Career Fair over the course of the Fall and Spring semesters.

JCPenney Suit-Up
