Welcome to the 2019 CIAA Career Expo
The Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA) 2019 Career Expo will be held Thursday, February 28, 2018 from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. at the Charlotte Convention Center (Grand Ballroom) on 501 South College Street in Charlotte, North Carolina. The CIAA Career Expo is designed to provide organizations the opportunity to meet recent graduates, current students from the CIAA member-schools and other universities, career seekers, and career switchers and recruit for available positions. The CIAA has a rich and storied tradition in intercollegiate athletics and we have an equally extensive list of alumni who have gone on to make tremendous strides in many different professions.
Employers attend the CIAA Career Expo to increase visibility, illustrate the benefits of employment with their organization, and to provide information to students about internships and entry-level jobs. Employer profiles, containing a brief description of each employer, are available at the event. Other employers attend the event to introduce students to their organization and to collect résumés for future openings.
Your presence is important to us. We cordially invite you to participate in this recruiting event to share information about job vacancies, future opportunities, and post-graduate school programs. We have a bank of aspiring young professionals eager to enter the labor force and make a difference.
The large number of returning employers and graduate schools each year is a testament to the effectiveness of the CIAA Career Expo. We appreciate those organizations and graduate schools that have attended previous fairs and thank you for your support. For those of you who are new, we promise you will not be disappointed!
