University Career Center hosting virtual Part-Time Job Fair
LAWRENCE — University of Kansas students looking to supplement their income for the fall semester can search for available jobs and schedule appointments with potential employers at an event this week hosted by the University Career Center.
The University Career Center will host its annual Part-Time Job Fair from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 27, to match students with employers who are hiring for on-campus, off-campus and remote positions.
"Our data indicate over 90% of KU students work at least part-time while enrolled at the university. Spring and summer employment looked much different for many of our students this year," said David Gaston, assistant vice provost for academic success. "The Part-Time Job Fair is a way to explore opportunities that will allow them to earn additional income, gain knowledge and build professional skills in this new and evolving labor market."
This year's event will be held virtually using the Career Fair Plus event platform. Students should visit the Part-Time Job Fair web page to see a list of attending employers and learn how to download Career Fair Plus. Once students set up their profiles in Career Fair Plus, they can begin scheduling 10-minute virtual appointments with employers.
