How it Works
To guard against the spread of COVID-19, the 2021 AUC Career Fair will be virtual on Thursday, September 16, in addition to an in-person format on Friday, September 17. The format allows for companies to make matches between open positions and talented candidates while interacting with candidates virtually through streaming technology using a secure, robust online platform. In-person interaction is great, but so is being able to make connections from anywhere in the world.
