Meet Employers

Throughout the school year, you’ll get to meet employers both on and off campus in a number of ways. All you have to do is stay connected in your major, across campus and at the CPDC so you’re in the loop on upcoming events and opportunities—and be ready to shine when it’s time.

Plus, through programs such as our Career and Internships Fair, which is attended by more than 60 employers, and program-specific fairs such as our Business by the Numbers Career and Internship Fair, you’ll get to meet and network with many well-known companies and organizations. Last year’s career fair included employers like The Kraft Group, Lockton, Federal Bureau of Investigate – Boston, and more.

Network, Network, Network

Here at Nichols, you’ll learn how to network, and you’ll find we offer many networking opportunities. We believe it’s never too early to start working on and benefitting from this key skill—so we want to make sure you know what it’s all about.

The CPDC offers career and networking programs throughout the year. Meet alumni at events like ‘Work the Room’ and ‘From Senior in College to Freshman in Life’ and hear how they used their networks to get them ahead!
