The Rochester Institute of Technology hosts an annual Packaging Science Career Fair that brings together students from the Packaging Science program and industry professionals. The fair is designed to offer employers and students a forum to meet and discuss the packaging field and career opportunities. Employers have the opportunity to present their company and meet students in the Packaging Science program (and students with Packaging minors) who are looking for co-op and full-time job opportunities. Students are able to gather general information about companies as well as specific co-op and full time opportunities within them. Companies typically stay the next day to interview candidates they meet at the fair.
The event typically draws about 25 companies and 115 Packaging students to the fair. Participating companies range from pharmaceutical, food and beverage, toy, automotive, cosmetic, packaging and consumer goods. Find out detailed fair information, including job descriptions, through RIT Handshake or the CareerFair Plus app.
Career Fairs can play a significant role in your job search. A Career Fair is an opportunity for you to:
- Speak with employers to learn about career paths, as well as full-time, internship, or co-op employment opportunities
- Learn which skills and experiences increase your employment potential and how to better brand yourself to potential employers
- Build a professional network that may enhance your chances of employment
