CU-Boulder students, if you’re looking to find your dream job or internship, then be sure to check out the Spring Career and Internship Fair!  This is the largest career fair on campus during spring semester. Whether you’re looking for that first job after graduation, a summer internship, interested in exploring new career options, or you simply want to network and make new connections, the Spring Fair is the place to be.

Utilize your Career Buffs account (https://fedauth.colorado.edu/idp/Authn/UserPassword) to learn more about the employers attending and the positions they’re hiring for. Come prepared with resumes and business cards (if you have them) but know that many employers today ask that their applicants apply online.  Make sure to dress appropriately in business or business casual because first impressions make a big impact on potential new employers.

CU-Boulder students and alumni from all majors, experience levels and backgrounds are welcome to attend this FREE event. No pre-registration is necessary.
