Our fair connects many of the nation's top companies with KSU's brightest students and alumni for internship, co-op, full-time, & part-time positions.
Students of all majors and class levels are encouraged to attend. Don't forget that this is a two-day fair, so be sure to look for which day each company will be in attendance, and make plans to attend both days to visit with more companies!
To help you plan what day(s) to attend, we have centralized some majors to one day of the fair:
Many companies are also hiring for roles in accounting, management, communications, and many more fields. Use the Handshake app to run filters specifically for your situation. You can sort by major, job type, school year, industry, keyword, and much more!
Attendance reserved for KSU students and KSU/SPSU alumni only.
Please Note: Business Casual to Business Professional dress and student ID are required for entry. Bring plenty of copies of your resume to give to employers!
We look forward to being your host in February!
