Fall 2020 Career and Internship Expo

September 15, 2020 · 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. · Virtual

For the safety of our staff and students, Rice will be hosting a virtual expo. But don't worry -- you will still be able to meet talented Rice students and alumni, all in one day. The expo will be hosted on Handshake's new Virtual Fair platform. Like usual, the fair is open to all Rice majors and current and former students looking for a wide range of opportunities. We’re pleased to partner with the Career Development Office at the Jones Graduate School of Business, making it easier than ever to recruit ALL Rice students.

Registration is now open!

About the Virtual Expo

Employers who register for Expo will have the opportunity to host as many as 5 virtual group sessions over the course of the day, as well as an unlimited amount of 1-1 virtual sessions with students, with the ability to set qualifications for those. This is a great alternative to a solo information session on another day because students will all be in the same “place” for Expo, with the intention of speaking to companies. It might save you some hassle with marketing another virtual information session on another day!
