Job seekers will have the opportunity to discuss job opportunities with employer representatives and graduate school representatives will be available, too. Opportunities may include full-time, part-time and internships.

Career Fairs are excellent opportunities for career research. See what opportunities are available for your major. Network with employers. Make your own good first impression. 

Please do not attend this fair only to "trick-or-treat" for freebies. Employers have commented on the number of attendees who do this, and it reflects poorly on the Washburn community.

In addition to the Fair, stop by the Graduate Salute for everything you need for graduation. You will find cap and gown information, diploma frames and information on becoming members of the Washburn Alumni Association.

These organizations typically attend the fair to provide assistance with rings, announcements, commencement regalia, and alumni services.
