New mobile app will help students navigate success at career fairs

UAB Career Fair + appCareer fairs can sometimes be stressful. Between having to juggle programs, resumes, giveaways and busy class schedules on the day of the fair, life can get hectic fast. In order to make career fairs more manageable for students, the office of UAB Career and Professional Development has announced the implementation of the UAB Career Fair Plus app.

This app, available on the App Store and Google Play, will empower students to craft their career fair strategy by researching attending companies, navigating floor plans and the ability to receive alerts for workshops and events, all while on the go.
