Career and Internship Fairs

What is the difference between a career fair and a networking event?

While both events provide an opportunity to network and make connections, a career fair is designed to help students make connections with recruiters who are seeking to fill full-time or internship roles. Networking events are more informational and designed to help students explore career fields of interest.
