What is the Fall Career Expo and which students attend?

The Fall Career Expo is a two day event. It is open to all NDSU students, NDSU alumni, and students from local four-year universities. This fair is not open to the general public.

The Fall Career Expo provides an excellent opportunity to connect employers with students to discuss or interview for current and/or future career-related employment and co-op or internship opportunities. Last year, over 250 employers and 1,300 students and alumni attended this event.

**NOTE: This event is only for bona fide employers looking to fill internships and full-time positions that require or prefer at least a four-year degree. Anyone wanting to participate for the sole purpose of promoting anything except jobs may not attend.**

***Third Party Recruiters may not attend this event.***
