Commerce Career Day

Commerce Career Day

Commerce Career Day (CCD) 2014 was held Wednesday, Sept. 17, 2014, at the John Paul Jones Arena. As the first on-Grounds career fair open to all UVA students, CCD provided employers and students an advantageous networking opportunity at the onset of fall recruiting. More than 1,000 students attended the 2014 event and were able to network with over 85 organizations.

CCD allows employers to establish or enhance their company presence on Grounds. Company booths are set up in John Paul Jones Arena to promote internship and full-time positions with UVA students. 

Employers interested in receiving an invitation for CCD 2015 can contact Peggy Ehrenberg, Assistant Director for Employer Relations.

Searchable Database of Participating Organizations

Our searchable database assists students in learning about CCD participants and their employment opportunities by industry, position available (full-time versus internship), position location, and concentration/major of interest.
