  • 10-minute 1:1 meetings with students hosted by up to 15 recruiters. Each recruiter can set their own schedule and choose qualifications students must meet to attend.
  • View profiles and public resumes, as well as message the students you engage with at the fair, making it easy to prepare for and follow up on all of your sessions.
  • Access to video, audio, and text-based chat during these meetings, enabling the personal connection of in-person fairs in a virtual, accessible setting.

Career Fair Cancellation Policy

Once an organization submits an online registration and is approved, our cancellation policy is in effect. Organizations may only receive a refund for Career Fair if cancellation requests are made 2 weeks prior to the event date. If cancellation requests are not made 2 weeks prior to the event date, the organization will still be responsible for paying the registration fee. 

If an organization must absolutely cancel its registration, cancellation requests must be submitted in writing to careerfair@southeastern.edu

 

Career Fair is an opportunity for you to:

  • Establish a presence at Southeastern -- Visit with students and alumni about the opportunities your organization offers, and spread the word about your achievements and organizational culture.

  • Meet with over 1,000 Southeastern students and alumni ready to learn about opportunities with your organization.

  • Gather resumes -- Many of the student and alumni participants will be looking for full-time, internship, or temporary positions, and they will bring resumes to share. Review them at your own convenience, and contact the ones that pique your interest.

  • Prepare for On-Campus Interviewing -- If you plan to participate in the On-Campus Interviewing Program, Career Fair is a terrific way to meet some of the students you may interview this fall. Get to know them in the personalized venue of Career Fair first.

 

Area-, Industry-, or Discipline-Specific Career Fairs

Various departments and/or colleges (e.g., the College of Education, and the College of Nursing and Health Sciences) offer career fairs intended to be of benefit primarily to students in those majors.
