HUNTSVILLE – ASmartPlace College Career Fair is hosting a job fair for currently enrolled or recently graduated college graduates.
The effort is a collaboration between the Huntsville/Madison County Chamber and local and regional colleges and universities to connect college students with career opportunities in the Rocket City.
The college career fair aims to provide career opportunities for college/university students who are local to the Huntsville area or those who attend out-of-area schools and may be home for the holidays. In partnership with local universities and local alumni groups representing colleges around the region, students will have the opportunity to visit with employers offering full-time roles, co-op positions, and internships.
Organizers say all majors/industries are welcome to attend. Parents are also welcome to attend on behalf of their student to learn about career opportunities.
This event is free to all student job seekers, but registration is required.
