2019 College to Career Fair

Register Now!

The College to Career Fair of the Nashville Area Career Fairs is a smaller event than it has been in past years due to some membership changes. In 2018, just over 400 students attended from Middle Tennessee Schools. We hope you will be able to join us and meet future employees from the Middle Tennessee area.

Note: For the 2019 fair, the Consortium has decided to forgo the Teacher Recruitment fair.  The College to Career Fair will be the only recruiting fair in 2019.
