POLK COUNTY, FL – On behalf of all the colleges and universities in Polk county, you are invited to the first annual Countywide College Career Fair, which will host students from all Polk county institutions of higher education! The event will be on Friday, September 28th from 9am-1pm at the Polk State College Lakeland campus. Below you’ll find the link to register through Handshake. You will need to set up a free account with Handshake (if you don’t have one already), but after that the registration process should be simple.


Please be advised that first priority will be given to companies who have opportunities in Polk county. If there is still space at the event after those employers have registered, then companies with opportunities outside the county will be able to attend as well. 

If you are having issues with Handshake, please contact Kristen Fowler at kfowler@flsouthern.edu.
