Career Fair is one of the biggest career-related events in the region. On the Modesto A.

Employers comprise private industry; public, educational, and non-profit organizations; local government, the federal government, law enforcement, and military.
Career Fair is open only to FIU students and alumni, and is free of charge. Students and alumni wishing to attend Career Fair DO NOT need to register to do so. However, in order to attend students and alumni must wear professional attire, be able to submit one copy of their resume and have a Panther ID.
To register, students should go to their Handshake account, go through the questions, and actively use it to get their resumes approved, and to register for the fairs.
