Fall 2023 Events
Fall Career Fair
Sept. 13, 2023, Noon-4 p.m., Sutton Center
This event is open to organizations of all kinds (for-profit/nonprofit, local/national, big/small, etc.) as our kickoff to fall recruiting. The fall fair is our biggest event of the year, with our highest participation from employers looking to begin recruitment efforts and build brand awareness, and students returning to campus, eager to see what the market holds for full-time and internship opportunities. It is the “place to be” to network with WFU students so we hope you make plans to attend! Register.
