Upcoming Employment Fairs

Employment Fair FAQs

  • Who can attend employment fairs? All SVSU Employment Fairs are open to students, alumni and the community. We encourage students at all grade levels to begin thinking about their future by attending employment fairs beginning their freshman year.
  • Do I need to pre-register? Registration is not required, however students and alumni can register for each fair on Handshake. Community members do not need to register and are welcome to just check in the day of the fair.
  • Why should I attend? Whether you are actively seeking employment or not, attending job fairs helps you to build your network and learn about different opportunities and employers that you may not have considered before. 

If you have any questions about attending one of our upcoming fairs please contact the career services office at 989-964-4954.
