Semester events

Fall semester 2015

August  |  September  |  October  |  November  |  December

 

What? Workshops, career fairs, other events we sponsor, co-sponsor, or endorse.
Events sponsored by Career Services, unless otherwise noted.

Who? Some events are targeted by academic level, major, or career interest.
If no limit is stated, any VT student may attend the event.
Consult sponsor if you have questions.

Should I go to a career fair? Students should view each career fair website, determine who is invited, research attending employers to decide whether to attend; the employment world is not perfectly divided by major and college!
