Annual Career Events

At the Career and Corporate Outreach Center, we strive to create lasting connections between employers and students. Each semester we help over one hundred employers and even more students connect by holding various types of career events.

For students, these events allow you to practice your networking skills, get your resume critiqued, and create opportunities in which you can meet employers who have open positions at their company.

For employers, these events allow you to meet students face to face in a more casual setting, as well as give you a unique opportunity to connect with hundreds of Nevada students at once.

Virtual Career Fair

Employers connect with hundreds of students from every major and work background. It is a great opportunity for companies to promote themselves, available internships, and part-time/full-time positions. This event has successfully connected hundreds of students and employers over the years. Each year we see an increase in student and employer attendance. Last spring we had over 600 students attend the fair!
