Current Lincoln undergraduate and graduate students and alumni are invited to the Lincoln University’s annual Career Fair on March 24 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Manuel Rivero Hall. Lincoln welcomes graduate schools and employers that offer careers in criminal justice, nursing, technology, finance and many others.

Employers include Vanguard, seven departments from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, five police departments, the Drug Enforcement Agency - Philadelphia Field Division, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, ReMed Recovery Care, SunGard Availability Services, WHYY TV/Radio, Univest Corporation, and Upper Bay Counseling & Support Services, among others.

Graduate and professional Schools in attendance include Villanova and Penn State Law Schools, University of Maryland Baltimore County, Shippensburg University, West Chester University, Katz School of Business-University of Pittsburgh, and the Temple School of Podiatric Medicine.

More than 250 students typically attend the fair, but in the last fair held in October 2014 more than 400 students attended. Students from freshman through graduate-level are encouraged to attend to learn not only more about jobs and graduate school but also possible internships.  At least eight employers registered for the Career Fair indicated an interest in meeting freshman students.

Participants must adhere to Career Services dress code; two staff members will be at check-in to review students’ attire. Learn how to prepare for the career fair.
