Career Fairs

Career fairs are a great way to connect with U of A students, postdoctoral fellows, and alumni, and meet potential employee prospects. You can expect to connect with a variety of students and alumni from all areas of study at our Careers Day and Spring Hiring Fair events, or with students from the specific programs at the Education Fair and the Pharmacy Fair.

Career fairs are a great opportunity to interact with a large number of employers on the same day. You will be able to:

  • Build your network of professional contacts.
  • Explore your career options and how you can put your degree to work.
  • Discuss current and future work opportunities with a variety of organizations.
