University of Kentucky Career Fair – Tuesday, February 10th, 2014, 12-4 pm
The UK Employer Showcase is held twice a year, once in the fall and once in the spring semesters. The format is usually a two day fair, with the first day being dedicated to engineering/science/high tech and the other to non-profit, government and business.
The Career Fair provides an opportunity for engineering and computer science students of all classifications to meet with prospective employers to discuss employment trends and opportunities within specific industries, and to inquire about future co-op, internship, part-time, summer and full time employment.
Employers can register starting in late November. If you want to ensure that you receive an invitation, please e-mail Ilka Balk.
Each fall, the Society of Women Engineers also hosts the Evening with Industry the evening before the career fair. This is an event exclusively for employers and graduating engineering seniors. This is a less formal venue to meet and greet graduating seniors who are looking for full time positions. For more information on our next Evening with Industry, please contact Kim Sayre, SWE advisor, at 859-257-3343.
Engineering Co-op and Internship Fair, March 5th, 2015, Ralph G. Anderson Commons
For the first time this fall, The Engineering Career Development Office hosted an engineering and internship fair to help employers who are primarily looking to hire co-ops or summer interns connect with engineering students. This event was held in conjunction with the College of Business’ internship fair, which will took place the morning of October 8. Employers wishing to register for both fairs received a discount. Regular registration for each event was be $100. Over 100 students attended this event and in a follow-up survey 100% of the respondents said it was an event they enjoyed and would attend again. If you would like to ensure to receive an invitation to our next fair in the Spring of 2015, please e-mail Ilka Balk. Space will be extremely limited due to the size of the space available in the Gatton College of Business and Economics as well as in the Ralph G. Anderson Building.
