Virtual Fall Career Fair Series and Career Exploration Week   

Each fall at MIT typically starts with a major recruiting event: the Fall Career Fair. This year, the student-run Fall Career Series Committee is collaborating with Career Advising & Professional Development to host a Fall Career Fair Series of six virtual, industry-themed fairs in  September and October. The fairs are open to undergraduates, graduate students, postdocs, and recent alumni. Registration opened on September 2 and details were shared with all students via a Fall Career Fair Series email. All fairs will be held from 10am – 3pm ET and hosted on the Brazen career fair platform. Due to demand, the Hardware, Robotics, Software Fair will offer a second session from 3pm – 8pm ET.

Prior to the start of the fair series, Career Exploration Week (CEW) (September 21-25) will offer industry/alumni panels, workshops, and networking events to help students explore potential career pathways and prepare for the fairs. This includes exploring careers in industry and academia as well as considering the option of graduate school. Targeted events for first-year students connect courses of study with career pathways and provide tips for connecting with potential employers.
