Career Fairs and Expos are a great way to interact with our students. Students of all years are encouraged to attend for recruitment and/or learn about the opportunities available to them, make connections and expand their network.
Fall Career Expo: This is a low key, fun event held every September where students will “come as they are” to explore different industries in the world of work and learn more about companies in our region. This event is free of charge and is a great way to get to know our students and help mentor them on their way to a career. Our next Career Expo will be Wednesday, September 12, 2018 from 12:30 to 3:00.
Annual Accounting/Finance Career Fair: This event is dedicated to accounting and finance but is open to all majors interested in working in these related areas. The next fair will be Tuesday, October 16, 2018 from 12:00 to 2:30.
Annual Career Fair: We host over 75+ employers for a one day Fair for full-time, part-time, and seasonal jobs, as well as internship openings. The next Career Fair is scheduled for March 27, 2019 from 1:00 pm to 4:30 pm in the O’Neill Center, Westside Campus. Many industries are represented to ensure a wide range of job and internship possibilities for students.
If you are interested in being a part of any of these events and are not currently in our job board database, WESTCONN Works, please fill out the Career Fair Employer Interest Form and we will review the information for consideration, and email you directions. Invitations to employers are by invite only and all correspondence will be sent via that database.
