How it Works

To guard against the spread of COVID-19, the 2020 AUC Career Fair is virtual. 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.
