Annual Student Employment Fair

At the beginning of each academic year, UNK Student Employment Services hosts their annual Student Employment Fair to help incoming freshman and other UNK students find part-time and work-study employment in the Kearney area and on campus.

-Discover new career opportunities. Get personalized recommendations based on your Handshake profile for which employers to connect with.

-Never wait in line, ever. Pre-schedule 1:1 or group sessions with employers that you are interested in or join an open session on August 26th.
