Students: Connect with Employers

The Center for Career Development sponsors a number of career fairs and networking events to assist students and alumni in their search for internships, and full-time and part-time work. Our Career Fairs are open to Duquesne University students and alumni wishing to break away from the often-anonymous online application process and engage with multiple companies and organizations.

  • Gather information on various employers
  • Network with multiple companies
  • Discover new opportunities
  • Gain first-hand accounts from company representatives

Employers: Increase Your Visibility 

We welcome your involvement with our campus and regional events! We encourage you to take advantage of these opportunities to connect and learn more about what makes Duquesne students so special. In addition to the annual and biannual career fairs and networking events listed below, we also partner on special networking events throughout the year for specific populations and industries, as well as workshops and presentations with employer involvement. Learn more about these opportunities.
