Career fairs provide an excellent opportunity to talk with students from all class years and majors and to collect resumes. For the last eight years, career fairs have been the number one way students have found employment.
Harvey Mudd faculty often attend to hear about your organization and to see alumni representatives. In addition, students from all seven of The Claremont Colleges are invited to attend.
New this year, the Office of Career Services will be hosting two job and internship fairs in fall and one in the spring. In fall, registration is limited to 75 organizations each day with date preference granted on a first-come, first-served basis. Students from all majors are encouraged to attend both days of the fall fair.
Fall Job & Internship Fairs* | Thursday, October 8, 2015 and Friday, October 9, 2015
