Unplanned closings and impacts on services and events

University closings are announced on the university home page and campus news.

If the university closes for all or any portion of a day [for weather or any other reason], Career and Professional Development must also close at the same times. Any events and services sponsored by our office that were scheduled to occur when the university closes are also cancelled.

If university is closed: While our staff would very much like to accommodate On-Campus Interviewing employers who have already traveled to Blacksburg prior to an emergency or weather-related closing, for safety reasons for students, for our staff, and for our guests, we are not able to be open during any type of university closing.

If university has late opening: On-Campus Interviewing will open when the university opens.
Employers or students with scheduled interviews: contact employer relations staff in advance if you have questions or anticipate travel problems due to weather.

Any announcements related to the career fairs that are sponsored by Career and Professional Development will be noted on the page for that fair. Please see Career and Professional Development fairs.

Many fairs held at Virginia Tech are not sponsored by Career and Professional Development, and we have no control over those fairs. For possible cancellations or rescheduling, consult the event website, the sponsoring organization, and the contact person for the specific event. The career fairs list has links to each event website where the sponsor should provide contact information.
