Southern Nevada Career Fair Logo

The Southern Nevada Career Fair is the first event of its kind; a true collaboration between UNLV departments to create a robust opportunity to connect students and alumni with many local, national, and global companies. This event is a must for UNLV students and alumni looking for employment opportunities in a centralized one-stop format. This collaborative event streamlines the career fair model, allowing employers to connect with students and alumni from a variety of disciplines and fields in one place, rather than having to go to many separate events.  For the fall 2020 fair, the Southern Nevada Career Fair will be moving virtual - and will be hosted on Handshake.
