WHAT:  More than 150 recruiters from virtually every sector of the business world will meet with qualified, energetic UMass Lowell students searching for part- and full-time jobs, internships and co-ops at the university’s largest career fair to date. 

Whether they are looking to land a job in fields such as health care, business and financial management, the defense industry, public education, social services, the arts, robotics, medical or computer technology, more than 1,000 students will be ready – resumes in hand – to share their skills and ambitions with prospective employers.

Come talk to students about their career hopes and goals and meet with representatives of companies from iRobot to IBM, Raytheon to Radio Disney, about why they value UMass Lowell students as job candidates and employees and how they assess the current employment market.

To prepare for the fair, many students have already attended interview-skills and resume-writing workshops through UMass Lowell’s Career Services and Cooperative Education Center, which hosts the fair. UMass Lowell representatives will be available to discuss how the university cultivates industry partnerships to help students gain real-world experience and establish their careers after graduation. Note: The fair is not open to the public but media may attend. 

WHERE:  Campus Recreation Center, East Campus, 100 Pawtucket St., Lowell. Contact UMass Lowell media relations for directions and parking information.
