Career Fair Days provide a forum for Cornellians to meet with 250+ employers over a two-day period. You can link to employer information in spreadsheet format at career.cornell.edu...Events...University Career Fair Days...Student Information.

Full Description:
A wide variety of employers attend, ranging from Fortune 500 companies to government and not-for-profit organizations. These organizations attend Cornell University's Career Fair Days to increase visibility, to illustrate the benefits of employment in their organization, and to provide information to Cornell students about entry-level jobs, co-op opportunities, and internships. Students can obtain information on the organizations that will be attending the 2012 event through the CCNet system. In addition, the Employer Directory, containing brief organization profiles, will be available at the Career Fair Days.

Many of these organizations also participate through Cornell's On-Campus Recruiting Program and use Career Fair Days as a kick-off for their recruiting season. Others attend to introduce Cornell students to their organization; some collect resumes for future openings.

Students need to prepare in advance for their attendance at Career Fair Days, with a well-developed resume and a "quick pitch" to use with employers explaining your interests and abilities. Cornell Career Services offers workshops to help students get ready for career events, as well as tips on making the most of a career fair.
