RPI Spring 2024 Career Fair



Career Fair Employer Information

Employer registration for the RPI Spring 2024 Career Fair is now live! 


To register for the Career Fair please visit Handshake!

Employer registration requests will be carefully reviewed to ensure there is a diversity of industries and opportunities at the fair.

Registrations will be approved based on the following:

•    Relevance of industry and opportunities to RPI students and academic programs
•    Active and complete job postings in Handshake by 1/8/24 - please confirm that job expiration dates extend beyond the career fair  (we recommend 2/12/24 or after)
•    Willingness to speak with ALL interested candidates at the fair, not just certain majors or degree levels – this includes first-year undergraduates and students from majors outside of your typical recruiting pipelines
•    Demonstration of values that are important to RPI students (pay equity, incorporation of DEI principles in hiring practices, ongoing support for neurodiverse candidates, environmental sustainability, and more)

Once your registration has been approved, you will receive an invoice by email that can be paid by credit card. All payments must be received by the CCPD no later than 5:00pm ET on February 1, 2024. Please email Lori Flynn (flynnl2@rpi.edu) with any questions regarding registration or fees.

Student registration will open on January 8, 2024. We highly encourage you to register in advance, as many employers will review the list of registered students in advance of the Career Fair and may even directly message and invite candidates to events or open applications. 


To best prepare, we encourage you to take the following steps between now and the career fair: 

  • Have your resume reviewed by a member of our team. You can do this by scheduling an appointment for Handshake or stopping by the CCPD 1-3pm Monday through Friday for a drop-in resume meeting. 
  • Have a complete Handshake and LinkedIn photo, if you're in need of a Headshot or review of your online presence please schedule an appointment.
  • Update your professional wardrobe, winter break is a great time to shop sales. 


Are you a Rensselaer alumnus/a who will be returning to campus for the Spring Career Fair to recruit for your current company? Please fill out this webform so we know who you are! The CCPD and the Young Alumni Council (YAC) will also be hosting events specifically for alumni during the week of the Career Fair, including the Young Alumni Happy Hour on Wednesday evening and an Alumni + Students Networking Breakfast on Thursday morning. More details and option to RSVP are included in the webform.
