The Virtual Tech Fest will be held live in Handshake from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Students interested in pursuing a career in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics are encouraged to attend this fair. 


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 students 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.
