2021 Fall Career Fair Week + Information for Employers

For 2021 fall recruiting, the University of Notre Dame will offer "something for everyone" with a hybrid approach for both virtual and in-person events to provide employers multiple options for meeting with our talented students. To provide a comfortable experience and eliminate barriers to engagement by our students, attire for all events is business casual for both students and employers.


Virtual Campus-wide Career Fair (online on Handshake) September 9, 2021 4:00 PM - 8:00 PM EDT

All employers are welcome to join our virtual fair hosted on Handshake to meet individually or in group presentations with undergraduate and graduate students across all academic colleges and majors. 



Did you know that many Notre Dame students are most interested in meeting with employers at in-person recruiting events?  The staff of the Meruelo Family Center for Career Development has partnered with student groups and academic departments to provide employers many opportunities to meet with students in settings both large and small.
