More than 100 employers from the for-profit, nonprofit and government sectors will gather to meet George Washington University students and alumni at the Charles E. Smith Center from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday, when GW holds its Spring Career and Internship Fair.

“Attending a career fair is a great opportunity for students,” said Graham Bottrel, associate director for employer relations in the Division of Student Affairs.

“They can network with employers, some of whom may be on campus just this once, learn more about employers they may not have considered and discover what specific qualifications employers are seeking in candidates. And there is potential to be hired from this fair for an internship or full-time position.”

In addition to meeting employers, students can visit the Student Prep Room to brush up on interview skills, strengthen their online job presence at at the Rock My Profile LinkedIn Review and take professional headshots at the LinkedIn Photo Booth.

A list of participating employers is available here.  Students can RSVP in GWork for the event.
