Career Fairs

A Career Fair is an event where recruiters and students can meet to discuss potential internship or career opportunities. During a Career Fair (traditionally) recruiters will greet you at booths and students will explore the event, stopping at booths to introduce themselves to the recruiter and give their resume. At the University of Houston, there are multiple Career Fairs per semester.

Career Fair advice for students:

  • Review UCS online prep resources on @CoogCareers YouTube channel
  • Dress in business professional attire (even though it's virtual)
  • Review the list of participating employers - narrow down the list and research the companies
  • View the career fair Diversity Statement List.
