Events Before the Career Fair
For further information please contact Janelle Whisler at 785-864-4206 or email@example.com.
Next-Day Interviews happen on the day after the career fair (fall and spring). Interviewing typically goes on from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Interviews will be held in the LEEP 2 Engineering Building.
Since you will already be in Lawrence, we invite you to take advantage of the convenient opportunity to interview the great students you meet at our career fairs. With "Next-Day Interviews," you can create your own interview schedule as students stop by your display at the career fair. Invite the students that interest you to interview the next day and select a time slot that is mutually agreeable.
We provide tables in a large room setting, free parking and lunch.
For questions about next-day interviews please contact Lindsey McCaig at 785-864-2989 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
