About the Fair

Washburn Career Fairs typically draw around 350-400 attendees 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.

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.”
