Career fairs

Career and internship fairs provide you with a convenient opportunity to meet with motivated and skilled students and alumni. Fairs are an excellent way for organizations to gain visibility among students, maximize recruiting efforts for a range of opportunities and build connections for future hiring needs.

If your organization is interested in having more visibility during our career fairs, consider being a fair sponsor. Fair sponsors will be recognized and displayed on the Nevada Career Studio's social media accounts (before and after the fair), all fair marketing (to include the fair banner on Handshake), the Nevada Career Studio website (as fair sponsor), monitor screens in the Nevada Career Studio (as fair sponsor), and signage at the event. Additionally, you will receive “prime” table placement.

For questions regarding fair sponsorship opportunities, please contact Peter Martinez, Coordinator of Career Education and Employer Relations, at
