Construction Management Career Fair

Participate in the CCCE’s semi-annual Construction Management Career Fairs to develop a talent pipeline at Cal Poly and discuss potential employment opportunities with Cal Poly students entering the construction industry. We have been able to host over 100 companies per fair for the last three years. We are pleased to announce that the CCCE will be hosting two construction management career fairs in the Fall of 2023 and Winter of 2024. We are confident that Cal Poly students will meet with recruiters from the most respected construction companies and experience the best possible job searching and networking experience safely and responsibly.
