Networking & Employer Events

You are here

Common Good & Creative Careers (CGCC) offer students a variety of networking events throughout the year. In lieu of the one large career fair model, we offer multiple intimate industry focused events with approximately twenty employers per event. Students interested in these areas are strongly encouraged to attend these events to speak with employers about their hiring needs, current openings and overall hiring timeline. The Office of Career Strategy and CGCC also recognizes the value of partnering with peer schools to offer a series of larger career related events outside the New Haven area and is a member of several Consortium Events.
