The BDN Virtual Graduate School & Career Fair offers a two-in-one recruitment experience. It is a professional event for undergraduate students who are interested in attending graduate school programs. It is also a professional event for job-market ready graduate students and advanced degree holders to meet with employers from universities, non-profits and corporate organizations. Job-seekers will have an opportunity to interview with prospective employers or schedule interviews for a later date.
