A list of employers who attended the 2012 Conference and Career Fair can be found here. We will be adding employers to the page as they register for the 2013 Conference and Career Fair.
Students and recent graduates should check back here on August 13 to begin registering and applying for available positions.
Registration fee: $25 per student/recent graduate
We will be hosting free, interactive webinars prior to the Conference and Career Fair that will focus on helping you prepare for your job search and career. Check back here for updates and to register.
Students and graduates will be able to use the JusticeWork! site to apply to job and internship postings through September 12. Students and graduates will have to create an account and register to attend before applying to positions.
Employers will review resumes and make interviewing decisions between September 19 and October 3. Students and graduates will receive email notifications for each application they submitted by October 3 noting whether they were selected for an interview or not. Students and graduates selected for an interview will be able to accept or decline interviews until October 8.
Even if you do not get the interview you were hoping for, there will be several opportunities to speak to employers outside of the formal interview times. Both Friday and Saturday will feature Table Talk, an open period of time where employers will be available to speak to students on a first-come, first-served basis.
You are encouraged to identify the employers you would like to speak to before Table Talk begins. Keep in mind that many employers may have long lines of students waiting to speak to them. Plan ahead and strategize to maximize your time with all employers.
Do not use this time to conduct an extensive interview. You should have a quick, 30 second introduction and “selling point” about yourself. Most employers want to meet as many students as possible during this time, so be courteous to your fellow students and keep your face time as short as possible.
If you have questions about the career fair, please contact email@example.com. This email is checked daily and all inquires will be addressed.
