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 multiple in-person and virtual 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.
Spring 2021 Virtual Career Fair Series - Registration Open!
WPI will be holding a Spring Virtual Career Fair Series across three dates in February (February 16, 17, 18 @12-3pm). Each fair will feature students from all degrees and disciplines and is ideal for employers looking to fill full-time, internship, and co-op positions. We will be using the Brazen platform for these fairs, which will provide you with the ability to have 1:1 text, audio, or video chats with students when you invite them to connect, on top of other helpful features you can customize for your organization's booth. In order to formally register, you must sign in, or create an account, in the Handshake platform. From the homepage, click "fairs" and then search for "WPI Spring Virtual Career Fair Series.”
Hear from employers and students about the value of attending a WPI Career Fair. Employers also share about the unique combination of skills that WPI students bring to their organizations.
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 all logistical information 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.
To ensure productive conversation during the fair, please post jobs in Handshake before the career fair! Students will be researching company opportunities and applying to jobs before and after the career fair. For the best candidate pool, make sure yours are posted with WPI!
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.
All employer representatives will register the day of the fair. Please bring your business cards to expedite the check-in process.
If you have any questions or concerns, call the Career Development Center at 508-831-5260 or email email@example.com.
