Stags4Hire: To participate in either fair, students must have a complete profile on Handshake. They can check out the Getting Started guide for step-by-step instructions.

Career Counselors: Students can contact their school's career center for assistance with career strategies, updating or creating resumes, developing elevator pitches, and much more.

Career Workshops: Fairfield’s career centers will be offering a variety of workshops ranging from resumes to networking, and a LinkedIn photo day. Students can check Life@Fairfield to register.

Career Closet: The Career Closet is available to students in need of professional attire for the fair, interviews, and networking events. Students can schedule an appointment at
