Career fairs and our new alternative career fairs called "Meetups" offer the occasion to meet directly with a variety of employers in one day, and there are numerous events open to you. We encourage you to participate. What you learn now may help you prioritize your career interests and foster valuable employer relationships.  

Make the Most of Your Experience

Making connections early is incredibly valuable. Treat your career fair visit like what it is: an incredible opportunity to connect with potential employers, explore multiple paths and make a great first impression. The important thing is to arrive prepared. Review our career fair tips >

Find Your Fair/Meetup

Below is a list of 2014-2015 career fairs and meetup events sponsored or co-sponsored by Career Services. For specific dates and complete details, see our Events page.

#HireTigers Meetup

This is a hybrid event bringing together students, alumni, for networking, recruiting and industry education. The format for this new event is less formal than a traditional career fair and will include industry-specific chat areas and "hubs" with small bistro tables assigned to each organization, as opposed to large booths. Employers from specific industries in which Princeton students have expressed interest in will receive invitations. The following industries/fields will be represented: nonprofit, arts, entertainment, communications, marketing, advertising, publishing, manufacturing, business and start-up.
