Introduction

Talent Connect is Northeastern University’s biannual, university-wide, boutique, recruiting event.  It enables employers to host an open student/job-candidate forum. The Talent Connect career fairs allow for learning more about each other – the employers’ businesses and career opportunities, and the students’ interests and qualifications. Following these sessions, employers have the ability to identify and interview appropriate students towards the goal of meeting their recruitment needs.

Employer Engagement & Career Design will be hosting the Fall 2024 Talent Connect using NUworks. Students and employers will access the event through their NUworks account, which is powered by Symplicity. NUworks is the same platform used for organizations to post jobs and internships.

The event will take place over the course of three weeks.

Registration Fee:

  • $400 for profit
  • $200 for non-profit / government organizations
