Student organized career-related events (e.g. career fairs, company presentations, etc.) are an important component of MIT's career services efforts. Such events require a very high level of commitment, organization, and customer service. In order to best serve MIT students and to maintain effective working relationships with interested companies, student groups interested in organizing a career-related event must obtain approval in writing from both the Student Activities Office (SAO) (W20-549, 253-6777) and the Global Education and Career Development Center (GECDC) (12-184, 243-4733) at least six (6) to eight (8) months prior to the intended date of the career fair.
Approval may require either a written proposal and budget and/or be contingent upon combining with another already approved career-related event. In addition, all approved career fairs are required to meet with MCO and/or SAO staff to go over proper procedures and protocols. For additional information, please read the "Deliveries" section of this Guidebook. Note: Fall Career Fair organized by GSC, SWE, current senior class is the only large-scale, Institute-wide, student-organized, approved career fair to be held in the fall semester.
Consistent with national standards alcohol may not be served at career-related events. For additional information contact the Global Education and Career Development Center (253-4733).
