Where SOU Students & Employers Connect
Career Fairs offer an amazing opportunity for SOU students and employers to make a connection, learn about one another, and find ways to build a relationship together. Explore below to find information for students and employers.
This fair is the perfect place to connect with companies and organizations looking for SOU students and alumni interested in employment and internship opportunities in the Rogue Valley and beyond. Employers across a wide variety of industries will be hiring for full-time, part-time, seasonal, and internship positions. Regardless of your class year or major, this is a fantastic chance to build your professional network, learn about hiring employers, and practice your networking skills! Sign up for the Career Fair on Handshake!
Come join us on our beautiful Ashland campus for an opportunity to talk directly to our students. Career fairs offer a chance to talk to large numbers of students at once, while tabling in the Stevenson Union can help you connect to students in a less formal setting. Southern Oregon University provides career-focused and comprehensive educational experiences to over 6,200 students on both its Ashland and Medford campuses. SOU primarily serves the state of Oregon with a focus on southern Oregon and the northernmost counties of California.
SOU students are bright, motivated, and creative. Ready to hire a Raider for a great new job or internship? You’re in the right place!
