While consulting, finance and tech make up the lion's share of the employers attending Brown's fall and spring general career fairs, many non-profits and government agencies attend those fairs as well. Brown students can always log into the Handshake at Brown and search "events" tab to see which organizations and agencies have registered for upcoming CareerLAB career fairs. In addition, the CareerLAB's CCG project helps to organize and support the following career fairs.
