Organizations in attendance included Epsilon, Ernst & Young, Fairfield University Graduate Admission, Gartner, Indeed.com, KPMG, Lillian August Design, PwC, Make-A-Wish, RightClick, Save the Children, Subway World Headquarters, Terex Corporation, Urban Impact, and WWE.

At the fair, student Alexia O’Brien ‘21 was looking for internship opportunities. “The Career Fair was definitely an amazing experience to be a part of and showed me there are so many internships available. The event was beneficial and rewarding.
I look forward to my future!”

Many alumni and companies return to campus annually for the Career Fair. Danielle Masterson ’15 of KPMG stated, “Being at the Career Fair brings everything full circle. We know how to help the students and answer questions because we were all in the same shoes.” Danielle continued, “I remember coming to the Career Fair as a student and it really helped to get my foot in the door. I look forward to doing that for other Fairfield students.”

The Career Fair plays a key role in Fairfield’s student outcomes. 96% of the Class of 2016 secured full-time employment, enrolled in a graduate or professional school or participated in a service program within six months of graduation.
