This event is free and open to everyone: current students, alumni, and the general public. Professional attire is highly recommended.

More than 70 employers will be in attendance, seeking workers. Employers may use the same link to register for a table at the Career Expo. Job seekers do not need to register in advance. Please read the tips below on how to prepare.

Research employers in attendance

See the link above for a list of employers attending the Career Expo. You can sort the list by industry, position type, or area of study.

Glassdoor is an excellent website to find out what current and former employees think of their employer(s). You can get specific feedback on salary, interviewing, and what it is like to work at a particular company. Glassdoor has recently expanded to offer job posting and company profiles. Normally you must set up an account, but HFC students and alumni can now receive free unlimited access using the link above.

Stand out in a good way and make a great first impression! If you need professional attire for the Career Expo or an upcoming interview, check out the selection in the Career Services Office, located in Rm. A-115 of the Learning Success Center (Bldg. A).
