Each year, NASPO staff travels to academic partner Supply Chain-focused career fairs. Invitations go out to CPOs in the region of that academic partner institution to attend and recruit for their office’s open full-time and internship positions.

It is essential that students have several opportunities to network with experts in their specialized fields. Students can make priceless contacts by participating in career fairs held by our academic partners. A successful career in public procurement may depend on building strong relationships with industry specialists. If you are interested in connecting with students, consider attending one of our academic partner career fairs listed below.
