Fees for fairs begin at $100 for up to 2 recruiters, a six-foot table, two chairs, parking, and lunch. Additional recruiters, electricity, and registration less than one month prior to the event carry additional fees.

Washburn Career Fairs typically draw about 350-400 attendees. 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 your organization helps them prepare for, what majors you target and why, and what they can do to prepare for admission to your program. Juniors and seniors are more numerous and more likely to be seeking information on admissions.

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.

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