Meet your talent pipeline at the UMC Job & Internship Fair

UMC is bringing the Career & Internship Fair back to Campus! Our students are excited to see you!

We are providing a new way for students to interact with employers and recruiters. From students visiting booths to talk about your business and potential job openings, to value added programs such as employer panels, interviewing opportunities, and a chance to gain a seat at the Champions Luncheon! This is taking business out of the box and engaging students in an immersive learning and networking event.

If you are looking to fill internships or hire for full-time positions, attend this event to promote your professional opportunities to talented and diverse UMC students!
