CCI Internship and Job Fair. Let CCI help find your next internship or job. Join us online Sept. 18, 2024

The Commonwealth Cyber Initiative (CCI) connects students with internship and job opportunities with employers throughout the state of Virginia at our free online Internship and Job Fair on Sept. 17.

We've partnered with Handshake, an experienced provider of virtual fairs, to help our students make connections.

Check back to learn about participating employers.


10 to 4 p.m.: CCI Internship and Job Fair Booth Exhibition

Students can visit employers’ virtual booths. After registering, students can create a profile and upload their résumés to connect with recruiters and program leaders through one-on-one live messaging or video calls.

We advise you to review your résumé prior to the virtual fair. Feel free to utilize this free online job search resource or visit your institution’s career center for helpful tips and tricks.

Hear Employers' Requirements, Wishes, Expectations

Talented interns can become future employees, equipped with in-depth knowledge about an organization and its work culture.  Participation in the event is free. 

At this and future internship fairs, companies aren't required to hire interns, and there is no minimum hiring requirement.

If you’re an employer who’d like to participate in our Internship & Job Fair, contact CCI’s Kendall Beebe at
