Full List of Events and Event Types

Fall Career and Internship Fair ($$)

Our largest fair is held annually (in late Sept. or early October). This recruitment event typically attracts over 1,000 students, alumni, and community members.

Diversity Recruitment Event ($$)

Unlike traditional career fairs, this event emphasizes the importance of networking. Organizations interested in strengthening corporate diversity will have the opportunity to meet face-to-face with members of our diverse student community.

Spring Career and Internship Fair ($$)

Due to popular demand we are combining our annual spring career fair and summer internship fair and moving to the Retriever Activity Center (RAC) to accommodate more employers and candidates. We expect this fair to mirror our Fall Career & Internship Fair, attracting 700+ potential candidates.

UMBC Connects ($$$)

Each semester, UMBC sets aside several days for its partnering organizations to be showcased on campus. Each day includes extensive advertising, food, and your choice of programming.

UMBC Connects: Employers in the Sciences

This event is designed to give organizations the chance to network with targeted UMBC undergraduate and graduate students who have chosen to pursue careers in the sciences and mathematics. It offers you an excellent opportunity to speak with students about intern and career opportunities within your organization. We also welcome participants who are interested in providing perspective, advice, and insight to our budding scientific professionals. You do not have to be actively recruiting to attend this event.

UMBC Connects: Employers in the Humanities & Social Sciences

This event is designed to give organizations the chance to network with targeted UMBC undergraduate and graduate students and alumni who have chosen to pursue careers with non-profits and in the social sciences. It offers an excellent opportunity to speak with students about intern and career opportunities within your organization. We also welcome participants who are interested in providing perspective, advice, and insight to budding leaders in social science fields. You do not have to be actively recruiting to attend this event.

Career Paths for Graduate Students

This program helps to expand graduate students’ thinking about employment options in various industries and to inform them about available career paths. You will have the opportunity to meet with talented master’s and PhD-level students during speed-networking roundtable discussions. Students are encouraged to bring resumes, and we encourage employers who are actively recruiting to consider attending.

Arts with a Purpose

Designed specifically for arts majors—including the visual and performing arts—and students interested in working within the arts, this event allows students to network with arts professionals and learn about potential career paths in an informal setting.

Information Sessions ($)

Hosting an information session enables you to teach students about your organization and the opportunities available. Typically, information sessions are an hour long, held between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m., Tuesday through Thursday, beginning in mid-September through November and mid-February through April.

UMBC On the Road: Exploring Outside the Loop

Students visit organizations and get a glimpse of life as an intern or career professional. We can bring as many or as few students as you can handle. Among our best and brightest, these students are majoring in disciplines that are most aligned with your hiring needs. Ideally, students will be able to tour your facility, hear about the company from current interns and/or employees, understand your current hiring needs, and have the chance to ask questions.

The Inside Scoop, Intern Success Conference, Senior Success Conference, Graduate School 101 Conference

Whether you are participating as a panelist, presenting on a topic, or networking with students, these programs are a powerful way to strengthen your recruiting relationship with UMBC and attract top talent to your organization.
