Durham School Career Fair Employer FAQs

Because of the pandemic, will the 2021 Fair be held in-person or virtually?

The 2021 Durham School Career Fair will be held both in-person at the Scott Conference Center and online via Handshake's virtual career fair platform. Employers will still get access to resume books as usual. Internship Presentations will be hosted on August 2 & 3 via Zoom webinars.

Can I register for both in-person fair dates? Can I register for the in-person fair and the virtual fair?

You may register for one 5-foot table. Please note on the Handshake registration if you need electricity for your booth.
