Connecting Students and Employers

The SDSU College of Agriculture, Food and Environmental Sciences Career Fair is an annual event hosted on SDSU’s campus in Brookings that connects employers and students. To accommodate the needs and schedules of our students, faculty, staff and partners, this year the fair will be hosted both on campus and virtually through Handshake, the leading career site for college students.

  • The CAFES On-Campus Career Fair will be held Wednesday, October 6 from 1–5 p.m. at Dana J. Dykhouse Stadium, Club 71.
  • The Virtual CAFES Career Fair will Thursday, October 7 from Noon– 4 p.m. on Handshake.

In both settings, companies will have the ability to host 1:1 sessions and group sessions to meet students. Each company will be allowed multiple recruiters to facilitate these 1:1 sessions and group sessions.

Last year, recruiters from more than 140 organizations and nearly 800 students attended the career fair. Please register early to ensure your organization does not miss out on this opportunity to connect with our talented students.
