About the Career Fair

The PVM Career Fair is a traditional way for students to get professional exposure and land opportunities where they can intern and potentially work for after graduation. Students also get to practice their networking and interviewing skills. More than 50 practices and companies come together to actively engage with our future vets and vet nurses.

The event is organized by the Office of Student Services.
