Graduate School Recruiters


If you are unable to attend our fair or would simply like to visit our students at another time of year, you may arrange a campus visit through The Career Center. Representatives are encouraged to contact our office at least 2 weeks in advance of the intended visit to allow ample time for logistical arrangements and marketing efforts to be made. In an effort to better organize campus visits and make them more productive for visiting recruiters, The Career Center has put forth the following guidelines:

  • Evening programs tend to have better attendance than daytime programs due to students’ class schedules. It is also more difficult to secure a room location during the day due to classes being in session. Recruiters are encouraged to host sessions beginning at or after 5:30 p.m., as these will typically yield a stronger turnout. Recruiters who must come to campus during the day are encouraged to hold an information table in our student center during the lunch timeframe.
  • Visits that are scheduled close to exam periods and school breaks may not have strong attendance. Please consult with a Career Center staff person to check your preferred date with our school calendar.
  • No campus visits will be scheduled on the day following a University break or holiday. This is to ensure adequate time to remind students of the impending visit and encourage strong attendance.
  • No visits will be scheduled on Fridays after 1:00 p.m. With many students not having classes on Fridays or leaving campus for the weekend, experience has shown that this is not a well-attended timeframe for sessions.
  • For most direct advertising, please furnish an electronic version of a flyer to us that can be sent to our student email lists. This ensures that news of your visit will arrive in the email inbox of thousands of Emory undergraduate students. Flyers should be provided to Kalesha Ervin for graduate programs or Rodia Vance for law schools.

Please note that The Career Center does not do pre-health advising of any kind. Health-related programs that would like to conduct on-campus visits should connect with Emory’s Pre-Health Advising Office.

Thank you for your interest in attending Emory’s Grad School Fair. Emory’s annual Grad School Fair is an excellent opportunity to get up close and personal with our dynamic student population and engage with students who are primed to hear more about graduate and professional school programs. With approximately 30% of each graduating class going on to pursue advanced education directly after graduation, Emory students are primed for attendance at the Grad School Fair.

Please note that Emory's Career Center utilizes Handshake, a career management software platform for Career Services offices, to conduct registration for the Grad School Fair. Registration for the fair will only be done through the Handshake system, and therefore recruiters will need to create an account for themselves in Handshake if they do not already have one. If you do not have a Handshake account, you can create one at www.joinhandshake.com. Please note that graduate programs should create an "Employer" account in the Handshake system to be able to register for the fair.

Should you have any questions about Emory's fair, please contact Kalesha Ervin (kalesha.hicks@emory.edu) or Rodia Vance (rodia.vance@emory.edu). If you are planning to attend Emory's fair, be sure to check out the dates of other Georgia grad fairs to maximize your trip to the state.

Each fall, Emory hosts the Law Admissions Networking Night event as an opportunity for admissions representatives and law school applicants to interact and network in a more informal way than a traditional law fair. 

For any questions about the program, please contact Emory’s Director of Pre-Law Advising, Rodia Vance, at rodia.vance@emory.edu.

Emory will host its 2020 Law School Fair on Monday, January 27, 2020 from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. in the new Emory Student Center on Emory's campus. The Law School Fair is open to all ABA-Approved (provisional or full) law schools as of the date of the fair. The law fair has seen an average attendance of 125 students each year since its inception in 2016. Registration for the Law School Fair will be done on Handshake and will open in mid-November, 2019. Any questions regarding the event can be sent to Rodia Vance at rodia.vance@emory.edu.

Emory's 2020 fair is timed to coincide with other area law school fairs to assist recruiters in making one trip for multiple schools. The 2020 "SAPLA Swing" will consist of events at the following schools:

Please contact the respective coordinator at each school for questions about their event.

Colleges and universities across the state of GA compile an annual listing of their graduate fair dates that take place in the fall semester. To see a listing of these programs, please visit www.georgiagradfairs.com.
