Student Employment Job Fair

Wednesday, August 22, 11 am - 3 pm

Information for Students:

Last year more than 35 employers attended the job fair along with over 1,200 students. Many employers will interview students that day and some employers will extend job offers to students at the fair. This is fair is for students looking for part time employment.

Below is a list of tips for the job fair:

  • "Dress to impress."  Business casual is fine. You don't need to wear a suit, but you don't want to come in work-out clothes.
  • Bring your class schedule and available work hours.
  • If you are applying for Work-Study jobs, you should also bring verification of your Work-Study eligibility. You can access this information in MyUI. Make sure you select the appropriate semester/session.
  • Bring your resume.
  • Bring the names, telephone numbers and email addresses for individuals you will list on applications as personal or employment references.
  • To be paid by an employer, you must complete the Form I-9 with your employer within three days of the start of work. To complete the form you will need identity documents. Be sure to bring these documents with you to campus - examples of these types of documents include: Passport, Birth Certificate, SS Card.
  • Be aware of the Job Fair hours of 11:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.  If you have class during that time period and are not able to attend, be sure to check out jobs on HireaHawk.
