Fall Career Expo Days

The Fall 2014 Career Expo Days will open for employer registration via CometCareer on June 2, 2014.
Because of the booth capacity of the UT Dallas Activity Center, we have a limited number of employers we can allow to participate in the Career Expo Days each semester. Registration for all Career Expos are on a first-come, first-serve basis.

We look forward to your participation in the UT Dallas Career Expo. This event is sponsored by the Career Center at The University of Texas at Dallas.
