Employer Resources

Looking for an intern, co-op or full-time employee?

Please post open positions to our online career management system, Handshake, which is available to all current students and all UK alumni. You can also request an on-campus interview date and information session through the system or by contacting us directly.

You can also contact the Engineering Career Development Office to share your openings with us. We will target the desired majors and students to advertise your position.

Career Connections, January 30-31, 2020

Every semester, our office hosts a 2-day career connections event where employers help students prepare for the career fair and the job search. We ask employer volunteers to help students with resume reviews, interview skills, LinkedIn profile reviews and networking practice. The event is not a recruiting event per se, but will help students start building networks as well as prepare their resume and professional and interviewing skills before the fall career fair. If you are interested in volunteering a two or four-hour shift on one of these days, you can contact Zachary Fuqua, Zachary.Fuqua@uky.edu. There is no cost to attend this event, and it is a great opportunity to meet students, help them with their professional development and start a recruiting conversation.

Engineering and Computer Science Career Fair February 11, 2020

The Fall 2019 Engineering and Computer Science Career Fair will take place February 11, 2020. Employer registration is live through UK's Handshake system. The Engineering and Computer Science Career Fair is the first day of a two-day career fair event (Business, Liberal Arts and all non-engineering/non-CS majors on Feb. 12), and organizations can choose whether to register for one or for both days.

If you have recruiting needs for engineering students and alumni, or need help posting jobs or registering for the career fairs, please contact us.

Spring 2020 College of Engineering Co-op and Internship Fair, March 26, 2020

 If you are recruiting for Summer or Fall 2020 internships and co-ops, consider joining us for the Spring Co-op and Internship Fair. This event attracts about 350 engineering and computer science students who are still looking for a summer or fall internship or co-op. 

Registration will go live in early December. If you have any questions in the meantime, please contact Zachary Fuqua, Zachary.Fuqua@uky.edu. 

Interviewing on Campus

You can request interviews and interview rooms through our career management system, Handshake. Engineering employers can now request rooms in the College of Engineering’s James and Gay Hardymon Center for Student Success in the F. Paul Anderson Tower. The James W. Stuckert Career Center also offers interview rooms at their location on 408 Rose Street.

If you have questions about your organization’s interview location please contact John Beck, john.beck@uky.edu

Recruiter-in-Residence

Seeking a casual environment to promote your organization while marketing your internships, co-ops, part-time positions or career opportunities at the same time? We invite you to become a recruiter-in-residence, which will provide you with a half-day residency in the College of Engineering's James and Gay Hardymon Center for Student Success. You can host open office hours, review resumes or schedule one-on-one conversations from 9 am to 12 pm and host a tech talk or info session from 12-1 pm. Bring company signage, flyers and giveaways. You can sign up for a half day at: https://app.joinhandshake.com/career_fairs/10629/employer_preview

Other ways to engage with students

Our office will be happy to help you get in front of students through events such as employer information sessions, classroom presentations, student organization meetings or tabling in the college buildings. We can also help you post your positions on Handshake, provide you with salary statistics for engineering majors, connect you with faculty for research or senior design project work or find other creative ways to connect your organization with UK. Please contact Ilka Balk at 859-257-4178 or ilka.balk@uky.edu to discuss opportunities.
