Barnard Career Fairs

During the fall and spring semesters, career fairs at Barnard College give employers from all industries a unique and convenient opportunity to meet with motivated and interested students and alumnae. The fair affords students the opportunity to gather information about career options within many organizations and across industries as well as seek out internship and full-time employment opportunities. Over 10,000 women and men undergraduate students are invited to the career fair. Attending the career fair is an excellent way for organizations to gain visibility on campus and maximize recruiting potential at Barnard College.

During our most recent Career Fair we had 83 employers and 1,100 students from Barnard and the other undergraduate colleges within Columbia University attend.


The next Barnard Career Fair will be held on Friday, January 20, 2017  from 11am-3pm.
