We strive to be as inclusive as possible. If you would like to participate in the Career Fair, yet the registration fee is a barrier to participation, please send an email to coadalumni@uh.edu to be considered for a registration waiver.

In addition, if the date does not work for your company, we would like to connect you with our students through job shadowing or a company tour. This is a free option that will be scheduled at your convenience. This will offer the students an opportunity to sit in on a company meeting, take a virtual tour, hear more about your company and employees, and increase the exposure of work your company provides. If you would like to offer job shadowing or a company tour to a group of UHCOAD students, please complete the following form.

Early registration for the Career Fair is encouraged! Registration will close on February 19, 2021.

If you have any questions at all, contact Sarah Holloway, UHCOAD Director of Alumni Relations, at smhollo2@Central.UH.EDU, of 713-743-7014.
