Co-op and Internship Fair
Companies and organizations mainly looking for a small number of part-time or summer interns, or a coop student, the College of Engineering is hosting a Co-op and Internship Fair on October 14, 10 am – 2 pm, at the Mining and MInerals Resources Building on UK’s campus.
Students, if you’d like to connect with employers, please consider attending. This is a smaller event, but it is easier to talk to companies and get your resume in front of them. This event does not replace the career fair, but it is an additional opportunity for students and companies to discuss positions.
Career Fair Prep and Networking Events
This Event takes place once a semester a week or two before the career fair. Have an employer critique your resume or give you a quick mock interview. No need to dress up, just bring your resume with you.
The Fall date was Friday, September 16, 2016, 10 am to 2 pm in the Mining and Mineral Resources Building. You can still get a resume review with someone from our team.

Career Fair Prep Seminars:
Learn how to do your homework on career fairs and how to best work it! Participation in one of these seminars, as well as a resume review (through career counselors on campus or at Resumania), will allow you to become a Career Fair VIP, giving you access to the fair half an hour before the general student population is admitted. This is valuable time with employers with short or no lines, so don’t miss out!
