The Fall 2023 University Career Fair will take place in Festival Ballroom across 2 days - Tuesday 9/26 and Wednesday 9/27 - from 11am to 3pm on each day.

This career fair is open to all JMU students across all majors and class years, as over 100 employers from multiple industries are coming to campus to recruit JMU talent from all academic programs for different jobs, internships, and career opportunities.

Registering for both days of the University Career Fair in Handshake is important - as the roster of employers for each day of the fair is totally different. Being registered allows employers to see your profile and resume to potentially connect even ahead of career fair's dates. Registration will open on August 1, 2023 for students:

Tuesday 9/26

Wednesday 9/27
