Logistics for Employers

Students learn about a variety of opportunities at the annual Career Fair.

We look forward to your participation in the Career Fair 2015. The following information is provided to help you plan your visit.

Planning Your Day

Table Set-up

The Monterey Conference Center's Serra Ballroom will be available for employers to set up from 8:00 AM on Friday morning, February 27th.


To minimize waste we encourage you to bring your own form of identification. However, we will have the option of white adhesive name badges with our Middlebury Institute logo for your convenience.

Career Fair Hours

Students and alumni will begin arriving at 9:30 AM. Career Fair 2015 closes at 12:30 PM.


For your convenience, coffee, tea, and water will be available in the employer break room from 8:00-11:00.


Join us for an employer luncheon immediately after the Career Fair in the DeAnza room, adjacent to the exhibit hall.


If you arrive by car, the Monterey Conference Center allows 10 minutes to unload at the front doors in Portola Plaza. After unloading, please park your car in the City's East or West Lots as marked on the Career Fair Parking Map. The East Garage is $7.00 all day (coins/dollar bills accepted). The West Garage is a block closer, but costs $10.00 all day. Thank you for adhering to the Conference Center parking policy.
