Career Fairs

You can begin building important job search skills by participating in career-oriented events within the department and college and taking advantage of the JMU career fair. 

A career fair gives you the chance to network, practice interview skills and gain industry knowledge in a less stressful environment than a typical one-on-one. As a job or internship seeker, you’ll have the chance to ask questions, make connections and discuss your skills and professional goals with employers who are excited to meet potential applicants.
