Recruit JMU Talent from All Majors

The University Career Fair is the perfect occasion for employers who are recruiting for various jobs or internships to connect with JMU talent across all class years and all majors.

Being on-campus, these two days of University Career Fair attract hundreds of JMU students who are seeking for career opportunities and highly value in-person conversations and connections.

Fall 2024 University Career Fair will take place on Tuesday 9/24 and Wednesday 9/25, from 1pm to 5pm on each day, in Atlantic Union Bank Center.

Registration for both days of our University Career Fair will open on May 1st, 2024 in Handshake. Please contact the Employer Service Team at if you have any questions.
