The career fair is a few days away. It can seem daunting, but the best way to prepare is to know who is coming.  We've created a list below of organizations that play in the science and sustainability realm.  But, you should still take a look at the full list of companies on Handshake.  Even if an organization isn't recruiting for a position that you're interested in at the fair, it's still very useful to get to know the recruiters and learn more about the process.  Face time with a company you're interested in is always valuable!
