Recruiting in 2024-2025 academic year? Meet and network with leading employers across industries at UChicago's Fall Career Fair on Wednesday, October 2 from 12:30pm-3:30pm!

  • The fair is open to all undergraduates, as well as students from UChicago's professional and graduate programs. It's an excellent opportunity to connect with employers looking for both full-time hires and academic year or summer interns.

  • RSVPing for the fair is a commitment you will be attending the event. This is a fantastic opportunity to introduce yourself to many employers who're excited to recruit top talent from UChicago!

5 Tips to Kickstart Your Career Fair Preparation

  • Upload your most recent resume to Handshake that includes your summer activities; complete & update your UChicago Handshake profile.

  • Add your resume to the resume book if you'd like to have it shared with employers participating in the fair.

  • Research employers ahead of the fair: check open positions on Handshake and employer's website, "follow" employers attending the fair and employers you want to check back in with, sign up for their newsletters to receive information on recruiting events & timelines.

  • Identify UChicago alumni at the organization and start making connections before the fair.

  • Create and practice your “elevator pitch.”

  • Plan your business professional attire. The Beta Epsilon Chapter of UChicago's Alpha Kappa Psi developed the Professional Closet to provide free access to business formal attire for the entire UChicago Community to ensure that every student has an equal opportunity to make a strong first impression in professional settings. Find the items you need on their website, add them to your card, and return them after a week.

More information will be shared as we get closer to the career fair date. Schedule an appointment on Handshake with a career adviser to review your materials, help you strategize for the fair, and make the most of your time with employers. We look forward to your participation!
