Career Fairs

As an employer looking to recruit indispensable talent for your company, you’ll find our Career Fairs to be a valuable resource to connect with our students. Employers consistently give us feedback that WPI students they’ve hired have the technical, people, and leadership skills to hit the ground running and tackle complex problems.

The Career Development Center (CDC) hosts three annual Career Fairs for WPI students and alumni to learn about full-time, part-time, summer internship, and co-op opportunities. A great way to meet and recruit key talent from all WPI disciplines, attending a Career Fair will also increase your organization’s visibility on campus.

Register for the Spring Career Fair

WPI’s Spring Career Fair will be held on Thursday, February 16. It is open to WPI students and alumni across all degrees and disciplines. Registration includes a 6’  table, 2 chairs, and up to 4 representatives.  


Registration is through your Handshake account. Once you have logged into Handshake, choose Fairs under the Campus column then type Worcester Polytechnic Institute in the search bar. Choose the 2017 Spring Career Fair link to register.

Employers Value Real-World Experience

Employers share the unique combination of skills that WPI students bring to their organizations.

WPI Career Fair Employer Perspective

Preparing to Attend a WPI Career Fair

Once your registration is approved, you’ll receive a confirmation email and invoice within three business days. If you need to make changes, additions, or deletions, call the Career Development Center at 508-831-5260.

Parking and Setup

You’ll receive an email with your itinerary two weeks before your selected Career Fair, which will include detailed parking instructions and other relevant information.

We suggest that your corporate representatives carpool, if possible. When you arrive, student volunteers will be available to assist you with unloading materials and any setup needs you may encounter. Your approximate space size will be 8’—a 3’ x 6’ table and two chairs will be provided.

Shipping Job Fair Materials

For your convenience, we strongly encourage you to ship your materials and displays in advance (remember, there is an 8’ length maximum for company displays). Packages will be delivered directly to your table on the day of the fair. Please clearly mark all displays and boxes with your company name and "Hold for Job Fair," then ship them to:

(Your Company Name)
c/o WPI Career Development Center
100 Institute Rd - Project Center, Lower Level
Worcester, MA 01609

If you are planning to ship your materials back to your company after the job fair, you must bring the necessary completed forms. A separate form must be attached to each package, and all packages must be brought to the shipping table area before you leave the fair.

Sponsors and government organizations should contact the Career Development Center at 508-831-5260 for payment options.
