Construction Career Fairs

Next Career Fair:

The Fall 2017 Career Fair

will be held October 4th & 5th in the Latham Ballroom at the Inn at Virginia Tech.  

The Myers-Lawson School of Construction Career Fair is held twice a year. The Construction Internship and Career Fair provides construction industry and engineering professionals the opportunity to meet students for career employment, summer internships, and co-op opportunities. 

Who Should Attend?

  • Any company dealing with construction (residential through commercial, industrial, highway, land development and specialty contractors) and/or civil engineering design should find this career fair worthwhile. Employers who are more interested in design may want to attend the Civil and Environmental Engineering Career Fair.
  • All students interested in working in these areas are invited to submit resumes in advance to Lora Howard at and attend this event. The primary student attendees are from the Department of Building Construction, the Construction Engineering and Management Program in the MLSoC, and Civil & Environmental Engineering.

Career Fair Social Sponsorship Opportunities

A social is held after the exhibitor day for each career fair.  This provides an opportunity for the students and the company representatives to interact in a more relaxed setting and to get to know each other better.  This networking opportunity is invaluable to our students.  The sponsorship opportunities are listed below:
