Career Fairs at WPI

Career fairs are great opportunities to meet company representatives and showcase your skills and experience. Employers come to WPI careers fairs because they are specifically interested in hiring WPI students and alumni for internships, co-ops, and full-time jobs. The CDC hosts in-person and virtual career fairs each year that are open to all WPI undergraduate students, graduate students, and alumni. They include the main Fall Career Fair in September and the Spring Career Fair in February, as well as a variety of other networking opportunities to connect with employers. We invite thousands of companies to attend, enabling you to network with key company contacts, identify potential job openings, and enhance your professional communication skills.
