Fall Career Fair Employer Information

The 2022 Fall Career Fair has ended. Thank you to the 360+ employers and organizations and 4000+ students, postdocs, and recent alumni who participated!

Registration in Handshake will open in June for the 2023 Fall Career Fair being held on Friday, Sept. 22, 2023.

 

The Fall Career Fair offers the opportunity to connect with undergraduate students, graduate students, recent alumni, and postdocs of the highest caliber with a wide variety of career interests, that go beyond the traditional engineering and technology career paths.

An in-person and virtual option for this fair will be offered to ensure you are able to recruit in an environment that works best for you and that meets your organization’s current rules and policies around travel and in-person event attendance.

The in-person fair may represent a particularly attractive opportunity for employers local to the Cambridge area, while the virtual fair, at both a lower registration cost and with no travel needed, may present an ideal situation for employers that are farther from MIT.

The in-person fair will be held at the MIT Johnson Athletic Center (details below), and is now OPEN TO PUBLIC. This means employers will not need Tim Tickets to have access to the fair. More details about MIT Covid policies and visitor-specific information can be found on the MIT website.

Interviewing

As part of your sponsorship benefits, employers will have the option to interview on campus the day after the Fall Career Fair on Saturday, September 24, 2022 between 10am – 4pm. More information on interviewing the day after the fair is located on our In Person Fair Sponsorship page.

In addition, employers may select to reserve interview space between September 26 and November in CAPD’s office through Handshake. Please note that these reservations are not included in the sponsorship of the Fall Career Fair. Learn more about how to reserve rooms, fees, and dates for on-campus recruiting through our Schedule Interviews page.
