The spring recruiting season has begun, with employers gearing up to meet students from all backgrounds and disciplines for internships, part-time, and full-time opportunities. The Spring Career & Internship Mega Fair returns to campus on February 16 and 17 from 11 am to 4 pm at Jersey Mike's Arena on Livingston Campus. This event is coordinated by the Office of Career Exploration and Success (CES) and is open to all students and alums from all four Rutgers campuses.
With over 300 employment organizations registered to attend, this has become the largest recruiting event of the year. Candidates are encouraged to participate on both days—as Thursday and Friday offer different employers.
