Career Expo

Approximately 1000-1200 students from all year levels and representing all majors typically attend the Fall Career Expo seeking both internship and full-time professional opportunities. The solutions to global problems large and small are being developed by Florida Tech students today. Hire a Florida Tech Panther!

The initial registration fee for the Fall Career Expo covers participation for two representatives (one representative for government/non-profits) to attend. Additional representatives are $25/each. 

This year, in order to better serve both our employer partners and students, we have decided to offer a targeted two-day Fall Career Expo. Day one will be dedicated to Engineering majors and day two will be dedicated to Aeronautics, Business, Psychology, & Science majors.
