Before coming to startup career fair, make sure you know the companies participating, their work culture, and their impact on their industry.
Prep and update your resume to showcase relevant skills and experience.
We recommend working with the Career Center or visiting the Marriott School resume guide for tips on creating a strong resume.
As the Startup Career Fair team screens resumes, we will reach out to top student candidates with an invitation to schedule 10-minute interviews with companies of their choice. Interviews are optional, and will take place during the event.
Make sure you arrive to your interview with a paper copy of your resume.
Prepare a strong, 30-second elevator pitch to use at startup booths that tells the story of your skills, interests, and how you will benefit from working at their company. This is how you’ll get a conversation going with the recruiters at the Fair.

Do I need a resume to come?
No, but we strongly recommend it.
To ensure quality of our Startup Career Fair for both students and startups, we allow all students to submit a resume to the Startup Career Fair team for general screening and feedback before coming. We want to give you your best shot at landing your next job or internship!
How do interviews work?
Interviews are optional, 10-minute intros with a recruiter or founder of a participating startup. Because of limited slots, they are invite-only based on quality of resume and preparedness of the student.
We will send out interview signups to select students a few days to one week before the event.
When will I know what companies are participating?
If the list is not yet linked above, then we are still working on a startup attendee list! The finalized list of startups will be provided a few weeks before the event.
