The guide is continually being updated as new registrations come in.

Who Should Attend?
Students accepted in the Co-op Program. Employers often create their initial interview list based on students they meet at the Job Fair.
Prospective Co-op students who are not sure if the program is for them. Don't forget that the deadline for applying to the Co-op Program is the day after the Job Fair!
Freshmen and sophomores not yet in their major. This will help you figure out how to fit the Co-op Program into your academic plan.
Students who will be gone over Spring Break. The on-campus interviews will take place over Spring Break. If you won't be on campus for them, the employers will need to set up an alternate time to interview you. This is your opportunity to make a positive impression to get that interview.
Why should I attend the Job Fair?
This is an opportunity to put a face to your resume and emphasize your strengths and explain your weaknesses. Some students say their formal interviews are easier because they've already met the employer representative at the Job Fair and have established a rapport with the potential interviewer.
How should I prepare for the Job Fair?
Review the Co-op Job Fair Preparation Handout based on the CSE Career Center's Career Fair Preparation Guide.
View or download the Guidebook App (see the link in the sidebar when it is published) to learn more about the employers and their positions.
Bring multiple copies of your resume (see the Resume Writing Section for help on writing resumes) to distribute to company representatives.
Registration for the Job Fair is located on the Interview Week Registration Form. You must have a signed Employer Agreement on file to have a table at the Co-op Job Fair. Most employers who participate in the Job Fair also participate in that semester's Interview Week.
There is no charge for employers to have a table at the Job Fair. We will provide you with parking vouchers when you arrive.
The Job Fair is held in the McNamara Alumni Center. As shown on the map in the sidebar, there is parking in the University Avenue Ramp (with a tunnel to McNamara). Other parking can be found at the Washington Avenue Ramp.
Note that the Co-op Job Fair is not the same as the College of Science and Engineering's Career Fair. For your convenience we try to schedule our Job Fair to be the day before or after CSE's Career Fair.
