Social Enterprise Career Fair
Since 2011, we've introduced students to unique work that steps away from standard corporate jobs and towards careers that give back to society. Our mission through our Career Fair is to connect Georgia Tech students studying engineering, computer science, business, industrial design, and more to internship, co-op, full-time and part-time positions at ethical, socially-minded, and eco-friendly companies and non-profit organizations. It's an amazing opportunity for companies and students alike.
One of a kind in Atlanta. Open to all majors. Real job experience. Real impact.
FAQ for Georgia Tech students
What kind of students should attend? Undergraduate students, graduate students, MBA candidates, etc. Basically anyone interested in making a social impact through a career.
Can students of any major attend? Yes! This career fair is built around a theme, not a specific field of study.
What's so special about this career fair? Again, this career fair is themed "social enterprise". This isn't a resume-handing-out competition with long, stressful lines. Instead, this is a more casual, intimate setting where you can have a long and meaningful conversation with a company recruiter about your passion to do good as well as your skills.
What's the dress code? Business attire.
Do I have to pre-register? We encourage you to (although not required) because it helps us prepare for the event.
What if I still have more questions? The best way to reach out to us is to email anyone on our team.
Is there a Facebook event? Absolutely! Find it here.
FAQ for companies and organizations
What kind of groups are invited? Those who are ethical, socially-minded, and eco-friendly. For-profit or non-profit. Startups, Fortune 100 companies, or B-Corporations. Local or international.
How do we register? Please head to our Eventbrite registration page to purchase your ticket. If you have any questions, please reach out to email@example.com.
What kind of positions are we expected to offer? Paid internships, co-ops, part-time and full-time positions. We would prefer to have as few volunteer opportunities as possible.
Why Georgia Tech? #1 Smartest Public College according to Business Insider, #4 Best Undergraduate Engineering Programs, #9 Best Graduate Computer Science Program, etc. The list goes on and on.
What does the $50 ticket fee cover? Each ticket covers 1 table per company. You can bring any number of company reps.
We're a non-profit organization with no funds allocated towards events like this. Can we still attend? We'd still love for you to make it. Let us know and we'll work something out.
What if I still have more questions? Contact our VP Events, Prachi, at firstname.lastname@example.org and she'll get back to you ASAP.

Kind Words about Past Fairs
"No other career fair has companies specifically tailored towards social impact and that's what makes it so awesome!
When I first heard about En2Em's career fair a couple of years ago, it was perfect because it gave me the opportunity to explore jobs in my field that would cater to my desire to have a direct impact on the job, even as an intern."
- Maya Carrasquillo, 4th year environmental engineering major
"This is a unique and very valuable opportunity for students looking for a job where they can incorporate their values and passion with the everyday tasks of their work."
- Dori Pap, assistant director of the Institute for Leadership and Entrepreneurship

The career fair began as a supplement to a TED-inspired conference on social enterprise. It has since grown into its own event, bringing in hundreds of students each year searching for meaningful work. All photographs by Eric Rabe.
