Another In-Person Day Added to K-State’s All-University Career Fair
August 30, 2022
Due to unprecedented demand from employers, an additional day has been added to K-State’s All-University Career. After reaching almost 100 employers on the waitlist, Day 2 has been converted from virtual to in-person at Bramlage Coliseum. The updated schedule is—
- Tuesday, September 20: Day 1 for Agriculture, Business, Arts and Sciences, Health and Human Sciences (In-person at Bramlage)
- Wednesday, September 21: Day 2 for All Majors (In-person at Bramlage)
- Thursday, September 22: Day 3 for Engineering, Technology and Aviation (In-person at Bramlage)
- Wednesday, October 5: Day 4 for All Majors (Virtual via Handshake)
As of this announcement, there are over 300 unique employers registered for one or more days of the career fair. “During the last 20 years at K-State, we have never gone to a waitlist as early as we did this summer. Other Big 12 universities have been experiencing a similar surge. We decided it was important to accommodate as many employers as possible, many of whom have been loyally recruiting from K-State for many years,” said Dr. Kerri Day Keller, executive director of the Career Center.
Given the expected record-breaking attendance by employers, student participation is more important than ever. “We have a ready-made class assignment that faculty members can offer their students. We can also provide verification of student check-in by cross-referencing class rosters,” said Keller. For further details, see the Faculty and Staff section of the Career Center website.
Students are also encouraged to volunteer at the career fair and with the Career Center for additional networking and fundraising for their student organizations. “Employers are always impressed with how student volunteers help roll out the purple carpet at the career fair. Student organizations can easily earn $100-$500 by assisting employers and students during the career fair. In addition, student organizations who participate in our new Talent Ambassador Program can earn additional funds for promoting employer opportunities through their existing networks,” said Keller. Student leaders can find more details in OrgCentral.
