Business and Accounting Career Fairs

Each September, the Business Career Fair brings eager recruiters looking to hire KU business students to campus. Companies from across the nation are represented, hoping to entice students to join their ranks. Many employed KU business graduates come back to campus to hire a few of "their own." It's the ultimate opportunity to secure an internship or job.

The Business Career Fair is a premier opportunity for recruiters to get face-to-face with top-tier KU business students. Each year, more than 125 companies set up shop on campus to meet with and collect resumes from more than 1,300 attending students whose credentials are unrivaled.

There will be free professional LinkedIn photo's taken at the career fairs for all attendees. 

Accounting Career Fair – Friday, September 11, 11:00 AM - 2:00 PM, Burge Union

Business Career Fair – Thursday, September 17, 1:00-4:00 PM, Kansas Union. Employers will be located on the 4th, 5th and 6th floors. Student check-in and LinkedIn photos will be on the 4th floor.
