2023 2023: Upcoming Career and Networking Events on Campus
Upcoming Career and Networking Events on Campus

Upcoming events on campus help students grow their networks, explore careers and land jobs.

Students, are you looking to find an internship, land your first job, or build a professional network? Do you need help planning for your next chapter? This spring, UMassD has a number of events on campus to help you launch the career of your dreams. 

The Career Center will host two career fairs in March and one in April, presenting an opportunity for UMass Dartmouth students in all disciplines to engage in networking and connect with potential employers. Students who attend the fairs can walk away with an internship, a part-time job, or full-time job.  Additionally, Alumni Relations will host The Senior Shift: From Student to Young Professional, where graduating seniors can connect with UMassD alumni and get advice on finding success after college. 

“Research shows that the majority of job offers come through networking,” says Jennifer Vincent, Career Center director. “As an institution of higher education, we offer students targeted networking and employment opportunities through our career fairs. With more than 200 employers on site throughout these fairs, we encourage our faculty colleagues to support student attendance at the fairs. The soft skills that continue to be developed through networking with employers prepare our students for successful employment, one of the ultimate goals of pursuing a degree at UMassD!” 

This month’s career fairs will be broken up by discipline to help students connect with employers relevant to their career interests. Students should dress professionally and bring copies of their resumes.
