Virtual Fairs:

Clarkson University attracts attention from numerous employers, many who know the value of a Clarkson educated employee who are seeking more just like them. Not all employers can make the trip to Clarkson, so the Career Center has opened up the doors to virtual recruiting methods.

From November 12 - 26, 2012, Clarkson will be hosting the "Knights Seeking Knights" Virtual Career Fair in KnightLink. Log into KnightLink to view opportunities from Clarkson alumni, made available to current Clarkson students (under Events --> Career Fairs) or view current opportunities here.

From April 1 - 15, 2013, Clarkson will be hosting a virtual fair for full time job opportunities and internships and co-ops currently available to students and recent alumni. View opportunities here.
