Opportunity Fair is UniPro's interpretation of a career fair. The Opp-Fair, as we call it, is an opportunity for companies and community organizations to hire, network, and connect with passionate individuals in our community. It is also an opportunity for individuals to explore internships, fellowships, and immersion programs offered in the area.
2015 Opportunity Fair
Our second Opportunity Fair was again held in collaboration with NYU’s International Filipino Association. At this fair, we held a workshop on personal branding and navigating the job market. We also held a panel on Leadership & the Power of Networks as well as a panel on Post Baccalaureate Education. Throughout the fair we had resume review sessions and mock interview sessions by UniPro staff and volunteers. At this fair we hosted 26 companies and organizations that tabled at NYU’s Palladium Hall. Among the headlining companies were Buzzfeed, the White House Initiative on Asian Americans, and the Paul & Daisy Soros Fellowships.
2013 Internship Fair
The first iteration of the Opp-Fair was called the Filipino American Internship Fair. The fair was co-hosted in the Fall of 2013 by NYU's International Filipino Association. The fair featured four panel sessions. Panel topics ranged from Business & Entrepreneurship to Media & Communications, as well as Health & Healthcare to Engineering & Technology.
