Look for “the RED shirt” (STAFF/VOLUNTEER)

LOAD IN / LOAD OUT TEAM: Volunteer student groups will be on site to meet employers who need assistance carrying items into the venue before and after the Fair. Covered meters located on N. Francis Street (east side of Kohl Center) will serve as a drop-off loading zone.

Student volunteers will be located on the corner of Dayton and N. Francis St., Loading Zone and inside Gate A.

WELCOME TEAM: We don’t want the interaction to stop at Employer Registration (Gate A). Members from career services will be around to check-in with you before and after the fair once you have made it to your table.

EMPLOYER SERVICES TABLES: Need assistance and you don’t see a RED shirt? Try our Employer Service Tables. An employer service table will be located on each level by the elevators (near Sections 121 and 221).


Registration for the Fall 2018 Career & Internship will open in June.

Table location will be assigned based on time of company registration on a first-come, first-serve basis. We encourage employers to sign up at their earliest convenience.

Specific requests for table locations can only be honored for those who are registered Corporate Partners as part of agreements outlined in each College’s employer partnership/sponsorship program.

At this time, registration for non-corporate partners is limited to 1 table, due to space constraints. If you wish to add a 2nd table (at full price), please indicate that in your registration, and we will be added to a wait list.
