The annual School of Architecture Career Fair connects the design community and other employers with prospective applicants from among its 400 students. The fair is held annually each March in collaboration with the College’s School of City and Regional Planning and is highly anticipated by firms and alumni.
Students are encouraged to prepare their resumes for the book that each participating organization receives, and to attend the event where they practice their networking and communications skills and frequently secure full-time positions, internships, and co-op placements.
