Job Fairs

For Adelphi students about to enter the real world, and for those with a couple of years of college still ahead, one of the best places to find a recruiting opportunity that  jump-starts a career is the Annual Job and Internship Expo.

This is an opportunity for students to meet with any of 95 companies and organizations based on Long Island and in New York City. Companies from accounting firms and international corporations to technology companies and health providers send their representatives, all eager to mine the deep well of talent at Adelphi.

The expo offers more than full-time jobs and internships. Students can also find temporary, part-time or summer employment at local businesses and summer camps. This event takes place every year during the spring semester.

Micro Internships

Demonstrate your skills, develop relationships and explore career paths, while providing real value to a business.
