Career fairs are a great way for students and job seekers to connect with employers. According to Career Fair Plus, the best months for career fairs are September and February, which are the beginning of the academic year and after winter break, respectively.
During these months, students are typically energized and eager to learn and connect. Additionally, graduating students are looking for full-time job opportunities, and others are focused on securing summer internships.
CCG also facilitates internships that students can apply for. To apply for summer internships, it’s important to start the application process as early as November and no later than January.
