With the job market booming across many industries, a record number of employers are visiting campus in the next four weeks.

The Spring Career Fair, Nursing Career Fair and Criminal Justice & Security Career Fair are all sold out! All career fairs are open to students from any major.

  • The Spring Career Fair (March 23, Tsongas Center) has 190 employers looking to fill STEM, business and human services-related jobs, internships and co-ops. I want to acknowledge our fair sponsors — platinum sponsors: Baker Tilly, Elbit Systems, Vinfen and Zoll Medical; gold sponsors: Analog Devices, DCS, Edwards Vacuum, Marmon Aerospace, MKS Instruments, Nolato GW and Werfen.
  • The Nursing Career Fair (March 27, Coburn Hall) has 25 healthcare employers recruiting for nursing and nursing assistant jobs.
  • The Criminal Justice & Security Career Fair (April 5, O’Leary Library) has 34 employers representing federal, state and municipal agencies as well as private businesses.
  • Additionally, through our involvement with the Massachusetts Educational Recruiting Consortium (MERC), UMass Lowell students will have access to 100+ employers at the MERC Career Fair (April 20, Boston University).

Students can prepare for these career fairs at the Career Fair Prep panel (March 15, 5 p.m., UCC-Moloney Hall) featuring speakers from Baker Tilly and UKG.

In addition to the career fairs, employers are tabling or hosting information sessions throughout March and April, including The May Institute, Sherwin-Williams, BAE Systems, Staples, Northwestern Mutual, the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration, Adapt Transition Services and ALKU. This list will continue to grow!

These events represent a lot of opportunities for many students but may not represent all the diverse career interests of students. Job postings on Handshake should fill that gap. Thousands of college jobs, internships and co-ops are currently posted on Handshake. They represent a wide range of industries, job functions and geographic regions.

Complete details for all recruiting events can be found on Handshake. We hope to see you at these upcoming events.
