Students, welcome to the 2014 Spring Graduate Student Career Fair!
After Graduate School, what next? If you have ever found yourself pondering that question, we encourage you to attend Graduate Student Career Fairs.
The Spring 2014 Fair is on February 4th, 2014. This career fair was specifically created to meet the needs of graduate students and employers searching for job candidates early in the Fall semester.
