The Career Center’s Strong Job Fair Comeback

After two years of being virtual, the Stony Brook University Career Center returned with six in-person job fairs, in addition to two virtual fairs this fall. Over 250 companies and departments were on hand to discuss job and internship opportunities with students and alumni in attendance.

So far this semester, 4,427 participants have attended the fairs, many of which have set records for high attendance. The fairs will conclude on November 4, from 2 pm to 4 pm, with the Virtual Diversity Recruitment Fair. 

All eight fairs were organized to meet the needs of undergraduate and graduate students and alumni in the job market. The exciting job fair season kicked off during the second week of classes with a block party on the Academic Mall on a sunny Wednesday afternoon with 20 companies and over 1,000 students attending.

The job and internship fairs bring industry-leading companies that have partnered with Stony Brook University on recruitment, such as PwC, Brookhaven National Lab, and North Atlantic Industries. 

“The job fair acted like a perfect bridge between these employers and myself,” said Alexa Toledo Ambriz, a student at Stony Brook. “It felt great to talk with these recruiters in person. I improved my networking and speaking skills in a professional setting. I can’t wait for the next one!”

“Being in-person allowed me to focus on my people skills and apply what I learned from the Career Center,” said Cristian Munoz, an employer relations intern. “I am excited about the spring semester fairs now, especially as a graduating senior.”

“For the first time in person, I attended the Business and Communications job fair and networked with several different recruiters,” said Cameron Lee, a business major. “After the job fair, I followed up with several recruiters and learned more about the various opportunities at each company. Overall, it was a great experience, and I want to attend another one next semester!”
