Career Fairs and Events
Hiatt offers numerous ways for students to connect with employers and organizations through industry-focused career fairs and events. These larger programs offer the opportunity to learn about various industries, broaden your professional network and explore various roles and career paths.
Highlighted below are Hiatt's major career fairs and events that are offered throughout the academic year. Students can find a greater array of career programming hosted by the Hiatt Career Center and employer partners on Handshake.
For additional information in preparing for Hiatt's virtual career fairs, review our virtual fair preparation guide.
Premiere Career Fairs
Large career fairs allow students to connect with employers all in one place, all in one day. Participants get the opportunity to ask questions, inquire about openings and learn more about fields and industries at these events. Hiatt traditionally hosts both industry-specific and all-encompassing career fairs throughout the academic year.
Career treks give Brandeis students the opportunity to visit various workplaces and explore different career paths. During a typical trek, students will tour the office, talk with employer representatives about their work at the organization and learn about internship & employment opportunities.*
*Treks are being hosted virtually for the 2020 - 2021 academic year.
Diversity + Connection Events
Hiatt regularly partners with employer and alumni experts to lead career programs in a variety of areas. We know that students often look for more direct connections as it relates to career paths and opportunities, so the Handshake label feature is now available for students to search for events related to those connections.
Each semester, Hiatt hosts a free LinkedIn photobooth where students receive a professional headshot photo for their LinkedIn profile. Photobooths are usually linked to a major career event so students are already professionally dressed and professional.
*Due to transitioning to virtual events, LinkedIn Photobooths have been suspended for the 2020-2021 academic year.
