This spring, we are excited to partner with Handshake to hold our career fairs in a virtual format.

Thursday, February 25, 2021
11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Handshake's Virtual Career Fair Platform

As we shift to a virtual recruitment environment at WVU, our goal is to streamline the experience and maximize your exposure to a variety of employers from multiple industries. In this spirit, we have paired the WVU Career and Internship Fair with the Chambers College of Business and Economics Career Fair for Spring 2021.

Expand Your Network

Connect with nationwide employers from diverse industries, non-profits, government, and military branches seeking interns and full-time employees.

Look professional, at least from the waist up.

You can expect to interact with employers at a virtual career fair through chat functions. However, some employers may wish to speak with you face-to-face.
