Career exploration:
The employers attending this fair provide an insight into many of the common careers pursued by STEM graduate students and postdocs. Begin your exploration to determine career options for when you complete your graduate degree or postdoc. Talk with the employers and/or sit in on the info sessions to gain an unprecedented insight into opportunities that match your career goals

But I am in the middle of my degree/postdoc!
Great! The best time to network is when you are not looking for a job, and when information is all you are looking for. Employers want to be kept busy during a career fair. They want to talk to as many interested and interesting students/postdocs as possible. The more engaged they are at the fair, the more likely it will be that they will keep coming back to future career fairs. You may not be applying for job this year, but at some point you will be, and so take this opportunity to make a connection at employers that might one day be on your shortlist. You can connect with these employers each year (and throughout the year) to learn more about future opportunities, and when you are ready to apply, you'll be glad that they are attending this event.
