Career Fairs

To safeguard the health and well-being of our entire community, all recruiting activities, including career fairs, are being planned as virtual events for Fall 2021. If circumstances allow for small in-person recruiting events to be held safely on campus, we will announce those opportunities in late summer or in the fall. 

MIT has a diverse range of career fairs, only a few of which are run by Career Advising & Professional Development. Others are managed by student organizations or academic departments. MIT students are also welcome at some fairs hosted by companies, professional organizations, and other universities. Career Fairs at MIT are open to MIT undergraduate and graduate students, postdocs, and recent alumni.
