The fair is for students interested in fields such as advertising, criminology, government, nonprofit organizations, journalism, public relations, radio and television, and social work.

Students attending the career fair should dress professionally and bring multiple copies of their resume and their student ID.

Representatives from school districts across Kansas and other states will be on campus to interview future educators Monday March 9. All December 2008 graduates and May 2009 and August 2009 graduation candidates are eligible for interviews. The deadline to sign up for interviews is Thursday, March 5.
