Spring Career Fair
Tuesday, April 15 and Wednesday, April 16, 2020 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Behrakis Grand Hall, Creese Student Center
The Spring Career Fair is open to all current and former Drexel students who are looking to network with prospective employers for future co-op, full-time, or alumni employment opportunities.
Employers may register below using Handshake. The registration fee is $600 or $350 for nonprofit organizations up until two weeks before the event. After the early bird deadline, registration for employers is $700 or $450 for nonprofit organizations. The event registration cost covers the attendance for two employer representatives. Employers will receive a confirmation email when the career fair registration is approved with an invoice, parking information, and directions.
On the day of the event, employer check-in begins at 9 a.m. with a light breakfast. The event is open to students from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. with a catered lunch provided for employers.
After you receive your event invoice, please pay for your registration.

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.
Free parking is available at the Vidas Athletic Complex with a complimentary shuttle service provided to and from the career fair.
Drexel has negotiated discounted rates with hotels located in Philadelphia. Learn more about accommodations and reservations.
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 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.
