Career Fairs: Internships & Jobs

Many employers that recruit CANR students use career fairs to make those connections. Attend career fairs early in your college career to make connections and find jobs while a student and for after graduation.

Depending on the industry, employers will recruit freshman and sophomores for internships that could eventually lead to jobs after graduation.

The MSU Career Services Network lists all the upcoming MSU career fairs. Below are some of the career fairs that may be of interest to CANR students.
