  • OnCampus Recruiting

    Approximately 100 employers conduct over 250 interviews with our students in a typical year. There are different possibilities for each major. These interviews include positions for internships, co-ops and permanent opportunities. Not all companies recruit on campus therefore it is suggested you explore all alternative ways for job searching. Feel free to make an appointment to explore all of these options with a career coach.

Career Fair

The CAFLS Career fair highlights career opportunities for the 12 majors housed in the College of Agriculture, Forestry and Life Sciences. This day is not just for seniors exploring full-time positions, but also for all students to explore internships and further understand career paths. All Clemson students are invited and encouraged to attend.
