Pre-major career fairs

Pre-major career fairs (previously targeted career fairs) are great opportunities for students who are still searching for the perfect major. There will be a networking lunch prior to each fair for students, faculty, staff, and employers. If you have any questions on what to expect at the targeted career fair, or how to prepare for it, contact Ann Adams or Alyssa Nastasi.
