Why Exhibit


HBCU CDM takes the guesswork out of looking for qualified candidates and brings them directly to you.

As an exhibitor at the career fair you will have the opportunity to showcase your organization to schools and most importantly to students.  Only top students in their fields are invited to attend.  Students are considered based on their GPA and recommendations from their career counselors.  As an exhibitor you will meet with some of today’s brightest students and job seekers.  The marketplace allows you to collect resumes from interested and qualified applicants in addition to exchanging information as you network.   

The three day HBCU Career Development Marketplace will take place on November 1-3, 2017 at The Hotel at the University of Maryland, College Park, MD.
