In the interest of providing various opportunities for students and employers to meet each other, the Cohen Career Center manages a variety of large scale recruiting events. The career fairs and interview days happen either on-campus in Williamsburg, Virginia or on-location in various metro areas. Employers are integral to these events and are encouraged to ask questions and/or register. Below is a list of recruiting events that typically happen each year for reference.
