Career Fairs - Student Information

Every year, the Office of Career Solutions and Corporate Engagement holds two career fairs specifically for IST students—Pro Expo in the fall and Future Forum in the spring. These events allow IST students to explore internship and career opportunities with employers seeking to hire professionals with their unique skills, while also giving employers exclusive access to the college's impressive pool of talented students.

By attending one of the College of IST's career fairs, students can:

  • meet recruiters from leading companies and agencies in a wide range of industries
  • gain access to potential employers who are looking to recruit students in the College of IST for internships and full-time positions
  • leverage numerous opportunities to network and jump-start your career
