Clemson University is hosting the Spring Career Fair in Littlejohn Coliseum from Tuesday, Feb. 6 through Thursday, Feb. 8. The fair is scheduled from 12-4 p.m. each day and more than 400 prospective employers are expected to meet with students in search of internships and full-time job opportunities.
Tuesday and Wednesday are designed for students majoring in technology, manufacturing, engineering and science fields. Thursday features prospective employers from social sciences, humanities, business and education. Professional head shots will be offered to job-seekers each day, while tours are also provided to give students a feel for the setup in advance between 9:30 and 11 a.m. each day.
The fair is coordinated each fall and spring by Clemson’s Center for Career and Professional Development (CCPD). Five of the last nine years, Clemson ranked No. 1 nationally in career services according to The Princeton Review. In the fall, the CCPD saw 5,100 student contacts at the career fair — an increase of 46 percent over the previous year.
“Attending a career fair can be an excellent way to connect with professionals in your field of interest, learn more about companies you’re interested in and gain valuable insights into job or internship opportunities,” says Brittany Neely, the CCPD’s associate director for events and employer engagement. “By attending and developing networking skills, you can build a professional network and better position yourself for future success.”
Attending students should check-in at Burton Gallery in the southeast corner of the coliseum. After-fair interviews are set up by prospective employers and occur inside suites at Memorial Stadium. Learn more by visiting the career fair website.
