Career Expo

NSU's Career EXPO is an ALL Major, ALL Classification, event that allows students to connect with organizations that will help them achieve their career goal. Students and alumni are encouraged to network with hiring managers and alumni from a variety of organizations. Attendees will earn about internships, full-time and career advancement opportunities and make connections that can lead to mentors and/or career experiences.  

Attendees are expected to dress nice, have a resume, and be ready to share who they are and what 3-5 things they can offer the organization. Attendees are also asked to rate/score the organizations' booths so that the best booth and the more career engaged organization can be selected. This event is held both in person and virtual, to ensure that all participants are able to connect without minimum hinderances.
