University-Wide Career Fair

The University-Wide Career Fair is back!

RIT sponsors a University-Wide Career Fair every fall and spring. This popular fair is open to all RIT students and alumni seeking co-op and full-time opportunities. Students can now meet with a wide variety of employers through a hybrid of in-person and virtual career fairs every semester.

Interview Day 

Currently, there will be no Interview Day and no options for companies to interview in person on campus. We encourage all employers to interview virtually this upcoming semester. 

Health and Safety

As we prepare for in-person events at RIT, the health and safety of our students, staff, and employers are of the utmost importance to us. Masks will be required during in-person career fairs for both employers and students, regardless of vaccination status. At this time, there will be no restrictions for employers or students to provide proof of vaccination or covid tests. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this fair's health and safety protocols, please contact
