Southern Nevada Career Fair

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. The Spring 2021 fair will be virtual and will be hosted on Handshake.
