This free event will be a great way for you to identify and recruit UArts talent for positions with your organization -- whether jobs, internships, gigs or other types of opportunities, remote or in-person. You can use this event to fill your current openings or to build a candidate pool for anticipated openings in the future (post-pandemic).

The active component of the fair will happen between Monday 4/12/2021 and Friday 4/16/2021, but you will have access to review student/alumni profiles in advance of that week. You will also continue to have access beyond that week.
