Year in Service & Volunteer Fair

Brandeis Year in Service and Volunteer Fair
Tuesday, October 7, 2014, 11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.
Brandeis University’s Sherman Function Hall, Hassenfeld Conference Center

This event is co-sponsored by the Department of Community Service, the Hiatt Career Center and the Waltham Group. Year after year, employers have reported that this event provides an unparalleled opportunity to identify and recruit top students. Attending this fair will allow your organization to recruit seniors for year in service programs and to identify students from all class years for volunteer roles. Lunch will be catered by local Waltham area restaurants.

RSVP today


10:30 AM–11:30 AM Employer Check-in / Table Set-up & Lunch
11:30 AM–1:30 PM Open Networking (and optional one on one or interview sign-ups)
2:00 PM–4:00 PM Optional One on Ones or Interviews with students


Table set up for employers will be from 10:30am - 11:30am. Please plan to arrive and set up within this time frame to ensure your table is ready for students who will enter the fair at 11:30am sharp. Each employer will be provided with (1) 6ft. table, (2) chairs, table sign with organization name and table number and interview cards to be distributed to students. Employers are encouraged to bring their own nametag, handouts and tablecloth. Lunch will be provided by local organizations so you are encouraged to arrive early to eat.


Free parking will be available in designated parking near the venue for the first 40 representatives who arrive by vehicle. If these spots fill, guests will be directed to off-campus parking and will receive door-to-door shuttle service. We encourage guests to use public transportation or carpool with other members of your staff.


Employers arriving to campus should enter at the main entrance and proceed up the hill to your left. Parking monitors will help direct you to park in one of three locations. If you would like to drop off materials prior to parking your vehicle, please let an attendant know and they will be happy to assist you.
