The Virtual Recent Grad and Alumni Job Fair will be held live in Handshake from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. This career fair attracts employers from a diverse range of industries and career fields including government, non-profit, insurance, advertising, PR, marketing, education, real estate, movies, TV, music, and more! Recent graduates and alumni are encouraged to attend to research industries, network with employers, and gain employment.


Given the current extraordinary circumstances and ban on large gatherings for Spring 2021, the CSUN Career Center has decided to move to a virtual format for career fairs. The health and safety of our alumni and employer partners are of the highest concern to all of us, and we are confident that virtual fairs will provide an excellent avenue for students and employers to connect. The Career Center will be using the Handshake career fair platform as it will provide many benefits.
