The college of Engineering Career Fair at The University of Akron

CAREER FAIRS

The University of Akron's Engineering Co-op and Placement Office sponsors a number of career fairs throughout the year. The events have become extremely popular for both students and our industry partners, so much so that paid employer spots sell out each year.  

Did you know?

Hundreds of companies representing a wide range of engineering sectors participate in the College of Engineering’s career fairs each year looking for exceptional engineers for co-op or full-time, permanent positions.

Current students meet one-on-one with prospective employers, learn about employment and co-op opportunities, and hand out resumes. Many students receive on-the-spot interviews.

“The career fairs gives us a chance to introduce our company to students interested in co-op. They get to know the company and we get to know them. We both win.”

Steve Dishauzi, Human Resources Director, PTA Engineering
