Job & Internship Fairs

This page is updated throughout the semester.

Fairs are sponsored each year to help you explore career options, search for a job or internship, and meet with employers. Two job fairs are held on the UMD campus each fall: E-Fest and The Head of the Lakes Job Fair. In the spring, students can attend the U of M Job and Internship Fair on the Twin Cities campus. Other local and regional fairs are also listed here.
