Engagement Day: Career, Community, Connection Fair at Framingham State University - formerly known as Employment & Enjoyment Fair  

Monday, September 17, 12:30 p.m. - 2:30 p.m., in the Athletic Center Gym

Employer Partner Registration is open through Ramtrack.

This event is a great opportunity to fill your part-time positions and internships with qualified candidates, while promoting your organization's visibility on our campus. Space is limited to sixty (60) off-campus employers and 40 on-campus employers

We co-host this event with the Student Involvement and Leadership Development (SILD) Club fair. Having two simultaneous events creates a dynamic atmosphere increasing student traffic and prospective employees. The students who are typically represented at the fair are mainly first and second year students, although there are some upper classmen who attend. Employers will be located in the Athletic Center, while student clubs and organizations will be located on the green outside the Athletic Center.
