OPCD job fairs are a great place to meet potential employers from a variety of fields. Oftentimes, the companies that participate in our fairs are familiar with UD students and have hired them for internships and permanent jobs in the past. Dress professionally and bring several copies of your resume.
OPCD hosts panels and speaker events throughout the year. The speakers are experts in their fields and will provide invaluable information about the industries and companies for which they work. Attend as many of these events as you can. Come prepared with thoughtful questions and copies of your resume.
