We are excited to announce a great opportunity to connect NE Ohio startups to co-op and intern talent at the University of Akron. This is the first startup-focused career fair in our region, and we are excited to get as much participation as possible!

This half-day event is being offered free of charge to the NE Ohio startup community by the University of Akron Engineering & Career Services Center. The event will be hosted on-campus in the Student Union Ballroom from 11am-3pm. The event will include a workshop and lunch where startups will receive HR training and education on resources offered through the University and the State of Ohio for co-ops and internships, followed by a “career fair showcase” open to students from STEM and Business majors.

Startup Eligibility:
A “startup” is defined as any company that is less than 5 years old, has less than 20 employees, earns less than $2M/year in revenue, and is not yet cashflow positive. If you have any questions on your eligibility for the startup career fair, please contact Courtney Gras at: [email protected] or 216-543-6066. Exceptions will be made on a case by case basis.

Registration:
All startups must preregister for the event by contacting Erin Elosh at [email protected] by Monday, October 17th. There is a limit of 50 tables for the event.

Agenda:
11:00am:         Doors Open & Setup
11:30-12:45:    Startup lunch and workshops
1:00pm:           Career Fair Begins
3:00pm:           Career Fair Concludes

Background Information: 

The purpose of the startup career fair is to bridge the gap between the talent-needs of NE Ohio scalable startups and the desire for hands-on, challenging startup work-experiences that students desire. The career fair will serve four purposes:

  1. Raise awareness of the growing NE Ohio startup community and job opportunities therein.
  2. Provide engaging, paid, local co-ops and internships to students.
  3. Train and educate local startups on how to utilize co-ops and interns with an HR workshop.
  4. Build a pipeline for retaining young talent in NE Ohio.
