NOTE: Washburn Career Services will be switching platforms in summer 2018. Availability of registration may be slightly delayed until July. The new platform will be Handshake - if you are not already using Handshake, take a look at it and create an organization account HERE! You won't be able to select Washburn University as a target institution until some time in June, and we'll send you a reminder.

Limited space is available for next-day interviews.

Attendance fees for this fair begin at $150 for early registration for-profit employers and $100 for non-profits. Fee includes up to 2 recruiters, a six-foot table (tablecloth by request), two chairs, parking, and lunch. Additional recruiters and electricity carry additional fees. Registration less than about one month prior to the event rises to $175 (for-profit) and $125 (non-profit). Details will be in Handshake!

About the Fair

Washburn Career Fairs typically draw around 350-400 job seekers and career explorers and 100 exhibitors. The general public from Topeka and surrounding area is invited to attend in addition to Washburn students, staff, and faculty. We encourage freshmen and sophomores (“Explorers”) to use fairs as career research events, so be prepared to help them understand what opportunities exist in your organization, what majors you target and why, and what they can do to prepare for a career in your organization. Juniors and seniors are more numerous and more likely to be seeking internship and career opportunities. Limited space is available for next-day interviews.

Washburn students are encouraged to dress professionally. We do not screen attendees by dress at the door. Attendees are encouraged to bring resumes. WU Career Services staff members do not see all resumes of all students at Washburn.

Employers are encouraged to bring giveaways and manage their distribution as you see fit. Students are discouraged from “Trick-or-Treating.”
