If you'd like to get helpful advice from a career services professional on your resume, cover letter and other application materials before you begin applying to jobs, join us for our free webinar, "Job Search And Application Tips To Land The Interview", on August 24th at 2pm ET. Register here!
By registering, you'll also be able to listen to the webinar anytime afterwards if you miss the live broadcast.
Equal Justice Works will offer another free webinar, "Interviewing & Networking Tips to Land the Job”, to students in the early fall. Check back for details and sign up here to get email alerts on Equal Justice Works’ programming.
Students and graduates will be able to use the online database to register and apply for jobs and internships through September 14. 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 15 and October 1. Students and graduates should receive email notifications for each application they submit by October 1 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 7.
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. We have heard from many of our employers and students that interviews and offers have been secured from meetings during table talk.
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.
If you have questions about the career fair, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. This email is checked daily and all inquires will be addressed.
