Fall Networking and Recruiting Events

Employer Partner Picnic on the Patio, August 29, 2019 4-7 pm

The career development office, with the support of our employer partners, hosts a picnic during the first week of classes to welcome new students and welcome back our returning students to campus. We will have music, games and food to network and chat with alumni who are representing employer partners. For questions, please contact ilka.balk@uky.edu.


Fall Career Connections, September 12-13, 2019

This two-day event will allow students to get a resume review, conduct a mock interview and/or have their LinkedIn profile reviewed by an engineering employer. Employers volunteer to help make this event possible, and students have an opportunity to speak with a "real life" employer about what it takes to set themselves up for success at career fairs, online applications, networking events and interviews. If you are an employer interested in volunteering for a two or four hour shift on one or both of these days, please e-mail Zachary.Fuqua@uky.edu.
