For Employers

The Economics Career Fair is designed to allow your recruiter to interact with hundreds of highly-qualified candidates so that they can make the most of the half-day event. The exhibit hall layout offers an ideal setting for meeting and interviewing candidates. In addition, two weeks prior to the fair, all employers will receive a resume book and are encouraged to contact candidates to schedule 15-minute interviews in Recruiter's Row, a section of the Career Fair reserved for employers to meet with candidates in a more private and quiet setting. 

Download the Employers handbook and apply to exhibit at the Economics Career Fair.  Questions?  Email us at nabe@nabe.com or call 202-463-6223.
