Job Fairs & Events

Have a strong presence on campus

The DePaul University Career Center hosts 6-7 job & internship fairs throughout the academic year. Our fairs offer opportunities to network with a diverse population of potential recruits. Our large quarterly fairs are open to students from all majors, so you can expect candidates with a variety of educational and professional backgrounds. Attendees are eager to learn about your full-time, part-time, volunteer and/or internship positions.

These events not only offer a great way to recruit qualified candidates, but they allow you to promote and maintain your company's brand on-campus. Candidates seeking both entry-level and experienced positions will be ready to discuss how their skills and knowledge can benefit your organization.

We promote your involvement extensively to thousands of DePaul students and alumni through campus-wide advertising and online employer listings.

Registration Information

To register for DePaul's job fairs, you must set up a Handshake account. If you do not have an account, we encourage you to set up your profile, which is free, on our platform. It takes about 2-3 business days to be approved and then you are able to register for upcoming fairs, as well as post vacant positions you are hiring for. 

Once you have created an employer account, please read our instructions on how to register for a job fair​​ on Handshake.


Payment Details

We must receive payment no later than 60 days after the fair. If we do not receive payment by then, we will deactivate your Handshake account and you will not be able to attend recruiting events until the balance is paid. 

Paying by credit card:

If you are paying by credit card, you can make payments on the Handshake platform. 

Paying by check: 

If you are paying by check, please follow the instructions completely. Please send a copy of your invoice with your check payment. Please make checks payable to DePaul University. Please address checks exactly as below:
