Employers may only sign up for one day.

Shipping Materials and Display Logistics

If you wish to ship materials prior to the event, materials must be received no later than one week prior to the career fair. All materials must be clearly labeled with Drexel University, the Fall Career Fair, and year (please also ensure that your company name is clearly marked on the outside of the package). You may ship to:

Drexel University Central Receiving
Drexel University Career Fair

Please include a return shipping label with your materials.

Exhibitor tables are six feet in length. Due to the large number of employers attending, space limitations, and safety concerns, we will not allow any displays wider than four feet.

Parking and Directions

Free parking is available at the Vidas Athletic Complex with a complimentary shuttle service provided to and from the career fair.

Accommodations

Drexel has negotiated discounted rates with hotels located in Philadelphia. Learn more about accommodations and reservations.

Cancellation Policy

Cancellations must be emailed to Helena Reid, the career services coordinator, two weeks prior to the career fair to receive a full refund. If your organization is a "no-show" for the career fair or cancels less than two weeks prior, registration fees will not be refunded or credited toward future career fairs. Employers that do not provide adequate cancellation notice are expected to pay the full career fair amount to cover the advertising, space reservation, and catering for the day.

Organizations with outstanding fees will not be permitted to attend future career fairs until their account is paid in full.

For More Information

For questions or changes to registration, please contact the Career Services Coordinator, Helena Reid, by email or 215.895.1594. If necessary, a revised invoice will be generated once changes are confirmed.
