The Career Center announces that employer registration has officially launched for K-State's annual All-University Career Fair. This year's event will be hosted online and offered from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. CDT over four days grouped by K-State's career interest areas.

  • Day 1: Monday, Sept. 21 — agriculture, health, science/math, vet medicine.
  • Day 2: Tuesday, Sept. 22 — business, communications, hospitality, visual arts.
  • Day 3: Wednesday, Sept. 23 — education, government, social services, humanities.
  • Day 4: Thursday, Sept. 24 — architecture, aviation, computer science, engineering. 

Employers and graduate programs may register for one or multiple days of the fair. During the online All-University Career Fair, organizations can engage with students by:

  • Conducting brief 10-minute introductions via live video.
  • Presenting up to three 30-minute virtual info sessions.
  • Offering pre-recorded video overviews.

Recruiters will be encouraged to reach out to students before the career fair to host online or in-person information sessions, post positions in Handshake and connect through campus networks. After the fair, employers can offer on-demand interviews, interview online with candidates in real time or schedule in-person interviews with candidates of interest. This online format is being offered in place of the traditional on-campus fair at Bramlage Coliseum which hosted a record of 385 companies and 4,500 students in 2019.

As always, the Career Center is committed to providing an exceptional, highly engaging career fair experience for students and those organizations seeking K-State talent. In collaboration with faculty and other partners among the K-State community, the Career Center will offer new training and resources to help students prepare for connecting with employers in an online setting. Please contact your college's Career Center liaison, if you would like to schedule a class or outreach presentation for your students during the fall 2020 semester.

There will also be a variety of online tools and recorded presentations available on the Career Center website. Visit frequently as new updates are posted throughout this summer. The campus community can stay informed by following Career Center media channels such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn. There are exciting possibilities ahead!
