Top 7 Engineering Career Fairs to Attend in 2016

With thousands of career fairs happening each year from 8,000 universities and colleges it’s hard to pick and choose which career fairs you should attend. Not only do you have to pick which schools to attend, but do you attend degree-specific or general career fairs? Do you choose the fall, spring, or both semesters to attend? Those questions plus several more need to be answered before you even think about creating a campus recruiting strategy.
