Please be aware that although we recommend that students dress in business casual attire, we do not deny admission to students in any attire. Some students will attend the fair in between classes, dropping in as they are able.


Set-Up: Representatives may arrive at any time after 9:00 a.m. for set-up. Assistance will be available for unloading materials. Recruiters are responsible for unpacking and setting up of their own displays/materials, as well as repacking and shipping after the fair.

Booth Size: Your space at the job fair allows for a floor display to be placed behind your 6' table.

Table & Layout: The 6' table includes a white tablecloth with two chairs. Organizations will be arranged in alphabetical order.

Banners: These cannot be hung on the walls, so please bring appropriate supplies to display your banner at/on the table.

Electrical Outlets: Unfortunately, we are unable to provide electrical outlets. We encourage you to bring displays that do not require electricity or video hookup.

Audio Displays: We prefer that you not bring audio displays due to the noise level of the fair and the comfort of neighboring companies.

Wireless Internet Access: The Bowen-Thompson Student Union is equipped with wireless internet access. Instructions for access will be included in your Welcome Packet. Please contact your IT department to make sure all firewalls and security software allow accessibility. 

Balloons: Due to the sprinkler systems in the Bowen-Thompson Student Union, balloons are not allowed.


To advertise your company on our website, send us your logo and we'll link it to a URL of your choice. Deadline to submit logo links for the Summer Job Fair is March, 14 2018.

Cost: $100.00
