Job & Internship Fairs

Job fairs are designed to link students (usually seniors) together with potential employers. Some are virtual fairs that take place on the web and others take place at convention centers and hotel banquet halls around the US. Job fairs will often have a more diverse group of employers than on-campus recruiting opportunities.

Carleton participates in several fairs--most notably the Selective Liberal Arts Consortium interview day events, and the Minnesota's Private College Job and Internship Fair--which are described in detail below.
