BARBECUE, PART-TIME OPPORTUNITIES FAIR TO SHOW HOW K-STATE'S CAREER AND EMPLOYMENT SERVICES HELPS STUDENTS WITH THEIR CAREER PLANNING AND JOB NEEDS

MANHATTAN -- Kansas State University's career and employment services will start the fall semester with two events to help students with their career options and job searches.

At the sixth annual Backyard BBQ, K-State students can meet with their career adviser, activate and update their free online student account -- from which they can search for a job -- and become familiar with the services and events offered by career and employment services. The barbecue is from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 26, on the south lawn of Holtz Hall. The free event includes 2,500 hotdogs, along with chips and drinks. The first 500 students to activate and update their online student account also will receive a free T-shirt.

K-State students and members of the community are welcome to attend the free Part-Time Opportunities Fair from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 27, in the ballroom of the K-State Student Union. The annual fair will feature a variety of part-time jobs, internships and volunteer opportunities. It is typically host to more than 50 employers and organizations. Participants should bring copies of their resume, and business casual attire is suggested.

The mission of K-State's career and employment services is to provide career advising, training, employment connections and resources to K-State students, alumni, faculty, administration, employers and members of the community in which the university serves.
