The largest college recruitment program in the state brings together New Jersey area employers with college students and graduates seeking employment. Experienced candidates are also welcome to attend.
Over 125 employers will have current and anticipated openings in most career fields and academic majors, including liberal arts, business, science, and technical areas. (Some careers are generally not represented, such as education, advertising, public relations and the media.)
Open to students and graduates from any college or university, all degree levels and majors, who wish to work in New Jersey. Resume submission is not required to attend the event, but is required to participate in the electronic resume database. Dress for interviewing and bring plenty of resumes. There is no fee.
