Recruiters, please see this information page especially for you.


All majors are welcome! Look your best, update your resume and be ready to present yourself to recruiters.

Whether you are looking for a full-time job, co-op or internships, you will find the Purdue Polytechnic Career Fair a great place to start. Developing your career is not just about what you know, but who you know. Network with local professionals to build your credentials, develop your career and find a mentor.

Prepare in advance: Take time to update your resume, decide what you’re going to wear, and think about how you might answer common interview questions.

  • Update your resume: Review, update and upload your resume to CCO; add a recent class project and/or your real-world experience. Take advantage of VMock — it’s an online tool provided by Purdue’s Center for Career Opportunities (CCO) that compares your resume with other submissions. The higher your resume’s score, the better the chance you will be selected for an interview.
  • Brush up on your interviewing skills: Learn about the STAR interviewing method many employers use. Learn about STAR and other interview approaches in the Fast Track video series at Big Interview, a mock interview platform provided by Purdue CCO.
  • Attire: How do you dress to impress? Purdue CCO explains the differences between “business casual” and “business professional.” We recommend you go for a professional look.

Be sure to bring the following with you to the career fair:

  • A smile, a strong handshake and a positive attitude
  • Purdue ID for admittance (students only)
  • Several copies of your resume

By registering in advance for the Career Fair at the MyCCO site, you will be able to see the majors each company has identified for recruiting.
