Career Fairs

Our career fairs are a great way to interact with Harvey Mudd students. Based on our annual senior surveys, the largest percentage of students find employment through the career fairs. Harvey Mudd College is a member of the Claremont University Consortium, which has an approximate total of 6,000 students. Students from these campuses are invited to attend HMC Fairs.

New This Fall

In response to student feedback, we have decided to separate our two fall fairs into a Software Engineering Fair on Thursday, September 21 and a general STEM Fair on Thursday, October 12, 2017. If you are an organization that hires software engineers as well as other disciplines such as mechanical, electrical and chemical, we encourage you to register for the general STEM Fair. If applicable, you may register for both fairs; please note that registration and fees are separate.

If you want to set up events or interviews the week of the fair, please review the recruitment page for more information.
