Our spring career fair connects undergraduate and graduate students with employers from government, nonprofit and education organizations. Georgetown University’s Cawley Career Education Center hosts the Government, Non-Profit and Education Career Fair in conjunction with Brown University, the College of William and Mary, Duke University, New York University's Wasserman Center for Career Development and the Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service, Swarthmore College, the University of Richmond, the University of Virginia, and Yale University. The Government, Non-Profit and Education Career Fair is only open to students and alumni of these schools. This event is not open to the general public.

The spring career fair is one of many ways to connect with students in New England and the mid-Atlantic region. Whether you have vacancies to fill, want to collect resumes or simply build your brand, the career services staff from the above 9 universities are excited to connect you with their talented students and alumni. Last year, 900 undergraduate students, graduate students, and alumni participated in this one-day event.
