Social Justice Career Fair

Social Justice Career Fair

Each spring, the Social Justice Career Fair brings to campus representatives from many advocacy organizations, including labor unions, nonprofits, worker centers, and NGOs. Employers share information about their career fields, organizations, and often employment opportunities for ILR and Cornell students. The Fair is held in conjunction with the ILR School's celebration of Union Days, a three-day event that brings over 20 labor leaders to ILR to engage in multiple panels, presentations, and informal discussions with students. 

The Social Justice Career Fair will be held on Thursday, March 14, 2019 in the ILR Conference Center, King-Shaw Hall, from 1 to 4 p.m.


The Social Justice Career Fair is open to all Cornell students. It provides a forum for students to learn about potential job and internship opportunities, career paths, and organizations, as well as network with employers. Students may register and view current employer attendees through Handshake. We encourage you to take advantage of resources to research organizations, update or create resumes, and make the best first impression; be sure to connect with your college's career services office for more information.
