Fair Preparation and #MegaFastPass:

Properly prepare for the fair and put your best foot forward! Career Exploration and Success (formerly University Career Services) at New Brunswick provides preparation resources for Rutgers University–New Brunswick current students and alumni. If you are not affiliated with RU-NB (either a current or former student of the campus) you will need to seek preparation resources through your own campus.

Preparation is paramount! A variety of options are available to you to prep for the fair!

Attendance at these events will not only grant you access to the #MEGAFASTPASS — a digital pass that enables you to skip the registration line at the fair but also earns you stamps towards the #RUTGERSWORKS Free Tuition Challenge.

The #MegaFastPass will allow students access to express check-in and coat check lines at the fair. Students who attend one of the events above are eligible to receive the #MegaFastPass. Beginning on or around August 26  students may also receive a #MegaFastPass when they participate in in-person appointments or drop-in hours.
