Recruit for student employees: On-Campus Job Fair registration closes Sept. 6, 2019

by Michelle Saport  |   

The fall semester is quickly approaching and many of you may be recruiting to hire student employees. You're in luck! The On-Campus Job Fair is scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 12 at 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Student Union Upper Hallway. Host a booth at this fair to share job opportunities and network with students. This is a free event and space is limited, so please be sure to register as soon as possible. Registration ends Friday, Sept. 6. As a requirement for this event UAA departments must have at least one active job posting online by the date of the fair, available for students to apply to. Follow these easy steps to register:

  1. Log in or activate your UAA Employer Handshake Account | Create an account through the "Employer & Career Centers" option. Follow the prompts. If your UAA program or department is not displayed in the list, you can register your department with Handshake by selecting "Create New Company" from the navigation menu on the right.
  2. Register for a booth | Follow the prompts and register your department or divisions of your unit for the fair. If you don't have a job posting live right now, that's okay - just click "I'm not hiring for a specific job right now." But you MUST have a live posting by the time of the fair.
  3. Attending Campus Kickoff as well? | UAA programs and departments are invited to participate in our advertising push for student employment opportunities during Kickoff. If your area is hosting a booth at kickoff AND recruiting for student employees, you can receive a "We're Hiring" placard for your table that signals to students that you have open on-campus jobs and includes a Save the Date for the On-Campus Job Fair. If you are interested in participating and receiving a placard, please email

Please contact Whitney Brown, interim director of Career Exploration & Services, at with any questions about the fair or activating your UAA Employer Handshake account.
