Day's Agenda


General Fair Information:

The Career EXPO allows employers from a wide range of industries to promote their opportunities and meet face-to-face with WTAMU students from a variety of backgrounds and majors. This general job and career fair attracts students of all classifications who are seeking employment as well as information about organizations. Thus the CAREER EXPO will provide you with an opportunity to get acquainted with many WTAMU students who will soon be entering the job market or seeking internships both part time and full time summer opportunities.

In addition, undergraduate students from West Texas A&M University are encouraged to attend in order to research careers and to establish early contacts with businesses. We feel that this is a mutually beneficial contact for both the company and the student and are pleased to offer this opportunity.

This event will allow WTAMU students a chance to learn more about your organization, your personnel needs, and the career paths you offer. Our faculty will be available for Employer/Faculty networking throughout the day.

While we are encouraging all students to attend both days of the EXPO, Day ONE will feature employers who are targeting majors in the College of Agriculture, Science & Engineering (Ag, Life/Earth Sciences, Engineering, Math/Physics & Computer Science) and Day TWO will feature employers targeting all majors other than those in the College of Ag, Science & Engineering.
 


Reception Details:

Once again, we will host networking receptions the evenings before each day of the EXPO to bring together employers, faculty and involved students. The reception is free to all company representatives! Sponsorships are available.

LOCATION: JBK Student Center -  Legacy Hall

TIME: 6:00 - 8:30 PM if your organization is a sponsor OR 7:00 - 8:30 PM if your organization is not a sponsor.

Be sure to RSVP as you register letting us know how many of your recruiters will be able to attend, so we will have an accurate food count.

Please contact EJ Ingram or Karl Kimsey at 806-651-2345 for details on why and how to become a sponsor.


Fees & Cancellation Policy:

REGISTER ASAP FOR BEST AVAILABILITY

Registration fee is $125 per organization on or before 10/7/2015 ($135 after 10/7) and includes a 6' table and 2 chairs in the exhibit area and lunch for two recruiters.

Discounts are available for employers who are WTAMU Career Services Partners as well as organizations choosing to be reception sponsors and attend both days of the EXPO, find more information here.

CANCELLATIONS RECEIVED ON or BEFORE October 6th will be refunded less a $25 administrative fee. Sorry, cancellations made on or after 10/6/2015 will not be refunded. Read our complete career fair policy here.


Registration Details:

Please register in BuffJobs - our online resume and jobs database. Note that each day of the EXPO as well as each reception are separate events in BuffJobs. Also note that there are discounts given to our WTAMU Career Services Partners as well as organizations choosing to sponsor the receptions and attend both days of the EXPO. These discounts will be applied by our staff after accepting your registrations, so if you are paying by credit card, it is recommended that you wait until after your registration is accepted (and your invoice adjusted for the discount) for each event before paying. Certainly though, if you pay at the time of registration, a refund will be made.

Final note:each event for which you register will generate its own confirmation/follow-up packet and invoice. An organization could potentially receive 4 separate confirmations/invoices for your participation in the Fall Career EXPO. If you elect to pay by check, you are welcome to combine all of your invoices on one check, however.

Access BuffJobs by hitting the "BuffJobs" button on the right menu bar. You will then log-in using the Employer Login page. If you need more information on how to register or assistance in getting logged in, please contact our office.
