For this year's fair, we will be using the University's career e-platform, Handshake. Students and alumni* will virtually meet employers for networking, internship, and full-time opportunities! Starting January 30, click the "+Join Event" button on Handshake to sign up! 

*Alumni: in order to participate in the fair, you must have a Morgan account. If you do not already have an alumni account, you can request an alumni Morgan email account via the Morgan Alumni Association website (at the bottom). You will request a "personal" email.  

We are expecting fifty (50) employers to participate in this year's fair. Here is a preliminary list of participating employers. Begin to do your research on companies! 

Be Prepared Before the Fair: Students/Alumni, be sure to have current information in your Handshake account, update your resume, work on your portfolio and present yourself professionally in both dress and virtual background for this virtual recruitment event!

You must sign up in advance to meet with Employers (1:1 + Group Session options): Employers will be offering pre-set virtual 1:1 and/or group sessions meeting times within the Handshake fair and you must sign up for them in advance once you have registered for the fair. Employers will have their sessions completed by January 27.
