What is Future Fest 2021?
The Future Fest at Homewood (previously known as the Homewood Career Fair) is a ground-breaking, 100% virtual approach to building authentic professional relationships, engaging with top talents and university partners, and exploring the future of human potential, work, and innovation.
Future Fest is modeled on the stage layout of musical festivals and is open to all Hopkins undergraduates, graduate students, and alumni, including the Whiting School of Engineering and the Krieger School of Arts & Sciences. Hosted on the Brazen platform, Future Fest provides employers the opportunity to identify and recruit top talent from JHU using virtual chats and instant messaging during our career-fair-style trade show floor, and there are additional networking and workshop events to join as well.
The Future Fest allows employers to connect with JHU students from all nine campuses in productive ways grounded in diversity, inclusiveness, and equity principles.
