The CIAA Career Expo is designed to provide employers, recruitment officers, and graduate school recruiters the opportunity to meet current students, recent graduates, and career switchers from the CIAA member-schools and other universities of the Charlotte area. 

We invite businesses and educational entities to participate in this recruiting event to share information about job vacancies, future opportunities, and post-graduate school programs.

We hope that you can join us for this magnificent annual event. The CIAA Career Expo is primarily designed to provide employers, recruitment officers, and graduate school recruiter representatives with the opportunity to meet graduation candidates, recent graduates, and current students from the CIAA member-schools and other universities of the Charlotte area. 

Your presence is important to us. We cordially invite you to participate in this recruiting event to share information about job vacancies, future opportunities, and post-graduate school programs. We have a bank of aspiring young professionals eager to enter the labor force and make a difference.

The large number of returning employers and graduate schools each year is a testament to the effectiveness of the CIAA Career Expo. We appreciate those organizations and graduate schools that have attended previous fairs and thank you for your support. For those of you who are new, we promise you will not be disappointed.

The CIAA has a rich and storied tradition in intercollegiate athletics and we have an equally extensive list of alumni who have gone on to make tremendous strides in many different professions.

Employers attend the CIAA Career Expo to increase visibility, illustrate the benefits of employment with their organization, and to provide information to students about internships and entry-level jobs. Employer Profiles, containing a brief description of each employer, are available at the event. Other employers attend the event to introduce students to their organization and to collect résumés for future openings.
