General Fair Information:
The Fall 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.
Once again, we will host a networking reception for the Wednesday evening (10/8/2014) before 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 at 806-651-2345 for details on why and how to become a sponsor.
