The Fall Career Fair Has Moved to a New Location! The 2016 Fall Career Fair is growing, and has moved to the Kaplan Center, at 1301 W Gate City Blvd. On Wednesday, September 28th from 10:00am-2:00pm, more than 100 employers will gather to meet and recruit UNCG students of all majors. Local employers will be offering positions in management, financial services, communications, logistics, healthcare, government, non-profit, graduate schools and MORE. Students of all class years will find opportunities here, highlighting paid internships and full time jobs.
Commonly Asked Questions:
How do I get to the Kaplan Center? The Leonard J. Kaplan Center for for Wellness is located across the street from the Campus Police Station, and close to Spartan Village. We encourage students to use Spartan Chariots to attend the fair. The live GPS tracker is available to help students plan their entry and exit from the fair. Additional options include walking or parking (at cost) in the Oakland Parking Deck.
Are suits required? No. While in years past suits have been required to attend this event, going forward professional attire is the standard. We want students to be able to understand their audience (meaning what the organization’s culture expects of their professionals), and how to dress appropriately. Common examples include slacks, collared shirts, blouses, dresses and skirts. Keep in mind that to be as competitive as possible, looking the part is important. For more conservative industries, suits continue to be a standard. We strongly encourage students to keep this in mind as they work to gain experience and prepare for graduation. The Career Services Center has a small inventory of suit pieces available for students to keep if interested. Stop by our office to learn more!
What is the one thing I should do if I’m considering attending? Come to the Career Fair! Whether you’re ready for an internship or full time job, or simply curious – there’s an option for every student. Career Fair tours will be available for students less comfortable with approaching employers independently and who may not be ready to consider full time employment options. Led by Career Coaches, students will have the opportunity to tour the career fair in small groups in order to connect and to learn from participating employers. Students with more specific interests will have the opportunity to flow through the event at will.
