SHOULD I GO? CAN I GO?
If events are listed here, it's because students are invited, by the sponsor, to attend.

See each event website to learn any limitations, expectations, advance requirements.
Any decision to attend a fair should be based on advance research and preparation:
Students should view each fair website and the list of attending employers to determine whether those employers have needs that match your qualifications.
Be aware that the employment world is not organized by majors and colleges!
