Nashville Area Career Fairs Consortium

Our Mission

The Nashville Area Career Fairs Consortium is a cooperative effort of colleges, universities, employers, and the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce that seeks to enhance the recruiting process for students, alumni, employers, and graduate schools by jointly promoting opportunities for employment and career development.

Who can belong to the consortium?

Institutions that grant Bachelor’s degrees and above; are within a 100-mile radius of Nashville; accredited by a regionally recognized accrediting association (i.e., SACS); are non-proprietary (not-for-profit); have an established career services office with professional staff involved in career services functions and designated to serve on the Consortium.

Each institution requesting membership must submit a request and be approved by August in order to participate in the following Career Fairs.  Each institution requesting membership shall be reviewed on an individual basis with consideration given to the established eligibility criteria and the capacity of available facilities for the Consortium fairs.

About the Teacher Recruitment Fair

In 2017 and 2018, less than 100 students attended the Teacher Recruitment Fair each year.  For the 2020 Nashville Area Career Fairs, the Consortium has decided to forgo the Teacher Recruitment Fair.  Within a few months following the 2020 College to Career Fair, the Consortium will post updates regarding the Teacher Recruitment Fair for the 2021 Nashville Area Career Fairs.

About the College to Career Fair

The College to Career Fair of the Nashville Area Career Fair is a smaller event than it has been in past years due to some membership changes. In 2019, just over 450 students attended from Middle Tennessee Schools. We hope you will be able to join us and meet future employees from the Middle Tennessee area.
