Event Overview

The virtual Government, Education and Non-Profit Career Fair connects undergraduate and graduate students with employers that work in, or serve, organizations from local, state and federal governments; public, private and charter schools; a variety of non-profit organizations; as well as for-profit organizations that work with these sectors.  Don’t miss this opportunity to learn more about these careers, jobs and internships, and network with participating employers.

Hosted on Handshake, the career fair is only open to students or degreed alumni from American University, Marxe School of Public and International Affairs – Baruch College, Brown University, Carnegie Mellon University’s Heinz College, The College of William & Mary, Duke University, Georgetown University, Harvard College, NYU, University of Virginia, University of Richmond, Swarthmore College, and Yale University.

For Students:

  • Eligibility: Open to Harvard College, Harvard GSAS, and Harvard Extension degree students.  A Harvard email address (e.g. @college, @fas, @g.harvard) is required to attend this event – please note some organizations may be targeting specific class years.
  • Student registration is now open in Handshake. Advanced registration is strongly recommended to take full advantage of this event, including one-on-one meeting times that fill on a first-come, first-served basis.
    • Refer to this video for a tutorial on attending a virtual fair in Handshake.
    • Note you will need to update your privacy settings and select the “Community” privacy level if you wish to attend one-on-one sessions.
    • If you don’t see available sessions, be sure to “follow” the employer to get updates regarding openings in their schedule. Any restrictions that the employer may have set up (like class level) will expire 48 hours before the fair begins. So be sure to check back to see if slots have opened up!
  • To Further Prepare: Regularly check the list of registered organizations, this is updated on a rolling basis. Before the fair, get your resume ready and reviewed by MCS during Daily Drop-Ins to add to your profile before the Fair.
