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.

Spring 2024 University Career Fair will take place on Tuesday 2/27 and Wednesday 2/28, from 11am to 3pm on each day, in Festival Conference and Student Center.

Registration for both days of our University Career Fair will open on Nov. 1st, 2023 in Handshake. Please contact the Employer Service Team at handshake@jmu.edu if you have any questions.
