Opportunity Fairs

Attending the Beyond Barnard Opportunities Fair is an excellent way for organizations to gain visibility on campus and maximize recruiting potential at Barnard College. During the fall and spring semesters, opportunity fairs at Barnard College give employers from all industries a unique and convenient opportunity to meet with motivated and interested students and alumnae. The fair affords students the opportunity to gather information about career options within many organizations and across industries as well as seek out internship and full-time employment opportunities.
