The Fall Career Expo is a career fair event for current students and alumni who are interested in full-time and part-time employment, as well as cooperative education and internship experiences. All those who plan to attend should dress professionally, arrive early, and bring several copies of their resume.

The Fall Career Expo features professional representatives from the health care information technology, transportation and logistics, therapeutic, food supply, social services, health care technology, marketing, law enforcement, banking, insurance, higher education, nursing, security, health care administration, financial services, staffing, manufacturing, news, retail, distribution, and government career fields.
