Student Information
Location & Schedule

Morning Career Fair - 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Employers exchange information and collect resumes, while educating and motivating students looking for both internship and full-time positions. Recruiters distribute materials, identify candidates and, if available, add students to afternoon interview schedules. 

Interviews - 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Apply by November 26th for pre-selected interviews, and receive selections in December. Employers are also able to add "same day" interviews during the Career Fair, so be sure to check in with them the day of the event as many will have openings in their schedule and be eager to fill their time with interested candidates.

Event Preparation 

Research

Create a priority list of the companies and organizations you hope to speak with during the fair. Need some assistance in strategizing? How about getting your resume ready? Make an appointment with one of Hiatt's career counselors by calling 781-736-3618 or in Handshake click on "Appointments" and select "Schedule A New Appointment."

 

Upload Your Resume & Apply for Interviews

Once you've uploaded a resume, you can search for specific positions using a keyword search for "NYC CIC." You can also search by interview schedules, and then apply for the attached jobs.

At the top left of the job description is a blue button marked "Apply." Clicking this button will either allow you to select from existing documents or upload new ones. Once uploaded documents are selected, your application will be submitted and you can track your application status under the "Applications" tab at the top of the homepage. Applying for positions will connect your resume and other required documents to the position for the employer to review.

Practice

Over the last few years, over 30% of interviews were obtained through morning interactions at the career fair, which means great first impressions work! Practice your pitch with a Hiatt staff member during drop-ins and review sample pitches from the CIC Elevator Pitch Worksheet.

Find additional preparation tips on the CIC website.
