Fall 2020 Career Fair and Career Center Services: Sneak peak into what we have planned!
The Fall 2020 Career Fair will be held virtually on across 3 days from September 8th – September 10th. We chose a 3 day format to give all students ample time to establish meaningful connections with as many employers as possible. 

In addition to our traditional large format Fall Career Fair, the Career Center will also host a Grad School Fair on September 30th to support students pursuing higher education. Throughout both Fall and Spring semesters, we plan to implement micro-fairs by industry to promote continuous hiring and potentially attract new employers to recruit our students.

The Career Center team remains available throughout the summer for appointments. Students should check handshake and monitor email for information about summer services and events like our upcoming resumania & resume drop, Career Fair Prep webinars and more.

We look forward to helping you find and secure your internships, co-ops and full time opportunities. We can’t wait to celebrate your success. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Margo Jenkins by emailing
Office of AccessABILITY Services
In order to assure equal access for students with disabilities, Clarkson University’s Office of AccessAbility Services (OAS) provides reasonable accommodations to qualified students in compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990. 

We review eligibility and provide reasonable accommodations, educate and advocate for an accessible and hospitable learning environment, and promote responsibility and self-advocacy on the part of the individuals we serve. Learn more about our services here!

Updates from Campus Dining
This semester we will be moving to an online ordering application for all meals called Dishout. Students will place their order on the app, select a location for pickup, pay online (using meal swipe, Declining Balance or credit card) and the app will notify the student when the order will be ready! There is also a new app for students called Bite which provides the latest menu and nutritional information and helps students plan meals ahead of time. We will be providing the same level of customer service and menu variety including specials and limited time offers. We also have strict standards for safety, cleanliness and physical distancing at this time as the well-being of the students and our employees is our main priority.

If students are interested in student on-call work for food service or catering please feel free to reach out to any of the contacts below. 

If you have any questions contact Bill Masullo (GM) at 315-268-2061 or; Kyle Mayette (Executive Chef) at; Courtney Ploof (Director of Catering) at; or Beth Gooder (Operations Manager) at
