Career Fair

The Career Fair cultivates connections with recruiters, the CougaRx alumni network, and workshops so that you can excel in your profession.

2020 Career Fair

The Career Fair is an annual College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences event to connect our newest talent with recruiters, alumni, and resources. The event takes place over two days in November at our two campus locations in Yakima and Spokane. Over a dozen companies representing a variety of industries including biotechnology, health care institutions, and pharmacies participate in the two-day event.

“The career fair is not only a great place to find employment, but it’s a great way to network with professionals from all parts of pharmacy including community pharmacy, health-system pharmacy, industry, and more. I not only secured a job, but I also expanded my network and found mentors to guide me as I continue my journey through pharmacy school and beyond.”


–Lee Roy A. Esposo, Class of 2021

Welcome Recruiters

Welcome to the 2020 WSU College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences Career Fair! We look forward to introducing you to our newest talent.

Every year, the college holds a career fair at each of our campus locations in Yakima and Spokane. Due to difficulties in planning around the COVID-19 pandemic, we are looking at alternative options for you to meet our student pharmacists. More details on how this will take place will be communicated later this summer.

Recruiters have the option to attend one career fair or both. In the meantime, if you are actively recruiting, we recommend posting your job positions on Handshake. You can refer to the “How to post a job in Handshake” video for information on this process.
