With over 30 career fairs held annually at Purdue University’s West Lafayette campus, you will likely find an event to suit your recruitment needs.

While the CCO serves as the central source of information, most of the career fairs held at Purdue University are run by student organizations or the colleges, schools and departments. Therefore, the CCO may not be able to provide information on registration fees, confirmation of registration or cancellation policies.
