Virtual Career, Internship, & Grad School Fair

Spring 2023 Career & Internship Expo

March 28 & March 29, 2023

NSC’s annual Career & Internship Expo is hosted by the Career Services Center. Each year 50+ registered employers come to campus to meet with current students and alumni to network and share their open job and internship opportunities! Even if you aren’t currently looking for employment, we encourage all students to attend to explore their options and make connections in their career field of interest. This event is open to all current NSHE students and alumni. This includes ALL majors and class levels (freshman, sophomore, junior, senior).

The Spring 2023 Career Expo will be held in-person in Roger’s Student Center (RSC) over 2 days on Tuesday March 28th and Wednesday March 29th, 2023 with various Career industries highlighted each day for a more tailored experience!

Dates: Tuesday March 28th & Wednesday March 29th
Time: 10am – 3pm both days
Location: Roger’s Student Center (RSC) Ballrooms on 1st floor

Career Industry Clusters

The Spring 2023 Career Expo will be held in-person over 2 days with various career industries highlighted each day for a more tailored experience! To see which broad career industries are being highlighted each day and to see which employers will be in attendance, see below.

Students are encouraged to attend both days as many employers will hire for less than obvious majors (for example, hospitals need to hire people to work in HR, and so on). On the employer lists linked below, you can see the various majors and position types employers are recruiting for. Even if you aren’t one of the preferred majors listed, ALL employers want to connect with ALL majors; the preferred majors listed are based off current openings and may not include all majors they typically recruit from.

Why attend the Career & Internship Expo?

Networking Opportunities – Did you know that over 50% of all job offers come through networking? Even if you aren’t currently looking for a job or internship, the Career Expo is a great place to network and begin making connections in your career field of interest. Talking with employers will give you the opportunity to hear their expert advice on how to stand out in your field, how to make yourself a competitive applicant to openings at their company or similar companies, and serve as a resource for future career field insights.

Learn About Job Opportunities in Your Industry – Most industries have multiple entry level opportunities. The Expo is a chance to explore these entry level options and to talk with employers about what makes an ideal employee for those positions. You may also find some less than obvious job opportunities that would fit your education and goals.

Learn How To & Get Comfortable With Presenting Your Professional Side – The first time you walk up to a potential employer, you will feel a bit nervous. For some, it may be the hardest thing they have ever done. You need to get comfortable with introducing yourself and distributing your resume. Each time you approach an employer, you get more comfortable presenting yourself in a professional manner. If you get an interview through an online job search, you need to be able to present yourself in a professional manner – and the Expo is a great place to practice that.

Land a Job or Internship – If you make a good impression, you may end up with an interview right on the spot. Even if they don’t interview you immediately, they will take your resume and get back to you at a later time; The more contacts you make, the more opportunities you will have to land a job or internship. Additionally, many students who attend this event, and especially those who meet with Career Services to prepare before the event to have their resumes reviewed and receive interview advice, will walk away with interviews scheduled!

Prepare with a Career Advisor

It is highly recommended that students and alumni speak with a Career Advisor prior to the Expo to learn how to best prepare for the event and feel confident!

How to meet with a Career Advisor:

Make an appointment:

  • Mon & Fri 9am – 5pm
  • Tues, Wed, Thurs 9am – 6pm
  • *1x Saturday/month from 11am – 3pm: January 21, February 25, March 25

Attend Expo Prep Drop-In Hours:

Drop-ins located in the Career Services suite (RSC 128; 1st floor of RSC in hallway across from bookstore).

  • Friday March 24 from 9am – 5pm
  • Monday March 27 from 9am – 5pm

Our Career Advisors can help you:

  • Update Your Resume & Print Off Copies

An updated and professional resume is the most essential tool for networking, landing job interviews and making a positive impression with employers (especially those you want to consider you for their open positions). If you meet with a Career Advisor to have your resume reviewed and updated, our office will print off up to 5 free copies of your resume!

  • Develop & Practice Your “Elevator Pitch”

You’ll only have a short time to speak to the company representative, so you want to have your elevator pitch ready. An elevator pitch is a 30 to 60 second brief about yourself that may include your career history and interests, strongest skills, relevant extracurricular activities and any academic achievements worth mentioning.

  • Practice Answering Basic Questions

A recruiter may want to ask you basic questions about yourself, your skills and your job history. Be prepared with your answers by reviewing your resume and speaking with a Career Advisor.

  • Research Employer Attendees

Review our list of employer attendees for each day and identify which companies you want to speak to at the event. Review their mission, their values and culture. Also look at what types of roles the company is currently hiring for or typically hires for so you can speak with the company representative at the event about them.

Day-Of Expo


  1. Bring at least 5 copies of your updated resume to share with employers if actively searching for jobs/internships or want to be considered for future opportunities.
  2. Bring some kind of folder to save information sheets and business cards (and to keep your resumes wrinkle-free).
  3. Dress for success! Make sure you are wearing business casual or business professional clothing that you feel comfortable and confident in. Confidence is key!
  4. Introduce yourself with a handshake (if comfortable). Handshakes are a long-standing tradition in networking events such as the Expo. If an employer goes to shake your hand and you are uncomfortable with shaking hands due to health concerns, just let them know and offer to elbow tap instead to prevent the spreading of germs.
  5. Be ok with being uncomfortable! We know it can be nerve wracking to walk up and introduce yourself, but it’ll never get better unless you try. These employers have also been in your shoes before and want to connect with you which they can’t do unless you talk to them.
  6. Challenge yourself to talk to as many employers as possible. You never know what kind of connection you could make or if you could meet your mentor.


  1. Go up to employers and just ask them to fill out your event passport to enter in for prizes (that is considered rude). You need to network and engage with them to get them to mark their spot on your passport.
  2. Bring a resume that is several pages long; remember that your resume is your commercial — not your autobiography. A carefully crafted resume illustrates your ability to showcase your strongest qualities and experiences that are of interest to employers.
  3. Text or scroll on your phone while interacting with employers.
  4. Avoid eye contact and speak quietly; speak clearly and distinctly. There will be lots of background noise. If eye contact makes you uncomfortable, look at the recruiter’s nose. No one will know the difference.
First-Timer Expo Tours

A First-Timer Expo tour is a guided experience in a small group setting. The tour is a way for students to casually engage in the event in a structured environment that teaches them what to expect at employer events.

Tour groups will consist of no more than 10 students and will last 20-30 mins in length. Each tour will stop at 3 employer tables. The tour guide will engage students in understanding how to utilize event materials and resources, how to effectively communicate with employer attendees and how to make the most out of their experience after the event.

*You do not need to be a first-time attendee in order to sign-up for a tour. We encourage first-time attendees to sign up, especially Freshman and Sophomore students. Any student is welcome to navigate the event on their own. Tours are limited to current NSC students.

To sign up for a tour time, please fill out the Career & Internship Expo RSVP Form. Students can also sign-up the day of if open spots are available.
