Start-up Career Fair

March 25, 2019
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Memorial Union Building | Strafford Room

In 2016, UNH opened the doors to its Entrepreneurship Center (ECenter). The ECenter is the co-curricular heart of ideas, innovation, and entrepreneurship at UNH. Its goal is to create the next generation of leaders with an entrepreneurial mindset who can see opportunities and identify creative solutions others have missed, one idea at a time. Although part of UNH, the ECenter is independent of any one college to allow for interdisciplinary collaboration. In 2017, the ECenter won an international award for the "Most Outstanding Emerging Entrepreneurship Center” from the Global Consortium of Entrepreneurship Centers.

The first-ever career fair at UNH just for start-ups will help you find students with a wide range of skills and an understanding and passion for start-up environments.

Students’ entrepreneurial skill sets come from the academic and experiential learning that happens across campus in every college, regardless of major.

START-UP CAREER FAIR DETAILS

This will be for full-time, part-time and paid internship positions.

  1. Set-up: Traditional career fair table set-up but we will look to have an energetic and fun environment
  2. THE COMPANY PITCH: Each company will stand in front of students on stage to give their “1-minute elevator pitch”. Students will vote on the best pitch! Awards to be given. A FUN and good way to let students know about your company, what positions you are looking to hire, and why they should make sure to meet you!
  3. Students will then be free to meet with you at your table/booth
