Last year, the fall and spring career fairs attracted a record 5,581 students and brought more than 600 employers to campus. This week’s fair will feature more than 1,100 representatives from 346 employers.

“Thanks to the phenomenal efforts of Lisa Bundrick, Deb Herman and their colleagues, thousands of students will have the chance to discuss professional opportunities with hundreds of employers,” said Neil Burton, executive director of the Center for Career and Professional Development. “We’re grateful to the employers, students and staff who make the career fair such a success every semester.”

Students are encouraged to bring a sufficient number of résumés as they attend the fair to network with prospective employers and explore potential career opportunities. Staff from the Center for Career and Professional Development will be on site to aid students throughout the process, from check-in to after-fair interviews that will be held in the IPTAY suites on the north side of Memorial Stadium.

Clemson University was most recently ranked No. 2 in the nation by The Princeton Review for best career services and held the top spot in 2016 and 2018.

“Last year, more than 60 percent of Career Fair attendees ended up with at least one job interview and 42 percent ended up with at least one job offer,” Burton said. “Even students who aren’t ready to look for a full-time job or an internship can benefit from meeting employers and establishing a relationship that could pay dividends down the road.”
