Career fairs

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.
