Attend Career Events

Career Fair Handshake

Career Fairs are an excellent way for employers to build their recruiting efforts on-campus. 10,000 students attended our Career Fairs last year.  These connections events offer a unique opportunity for career discovery and allow employers the opportunity to spark new connections and revive relationships made at previous events.  

These Best Practices will prepare you to get the most out of our Career Fairs and help you connect with students. For more information, please reach out to us at careerfairs@stanford.edu.

Each day will feature different employers (some may overlap) with a focus on different types of roles and industries.

DAY 1 - Employers with roles or industries that fit with consulting, creative work, education, finance, and non-profit.
DAY 2 - Employers with roles or industries that fit with aerospace, auto, energy, environment, government, healthcare, mechanical engineering, oil & gas and many more!
DAY 3 - Employers with roles or industries that fit with tech, public interest tech, software, hardware, and all tech crossover from other days.
