Families, encourage your students to this career fair that provides them an avenue to network with employers and learn about positions in a myriad of industries. Let your students know to RSVP in Handshake ahead of time so that you don't miss out on pertinent information regarding the event!

We strongly encourage your student to dress business casual when they attend the fair, and to bring multiple copies of their resume with them. If they need any help polishing their resume or creating one, please encourage them to stop by the Career Center. The Career Center has same-day advising Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., or your student can call 561-297-3533 to schedule an appointment.

Tell your student to keep in mind they'll want to research the organizations and departments attending the fair so that they are equipped to have impactful conversations with employers. If they have any questions, please contact the FAU Career Center at 561-297-3533 or at career@fau.edu
