Booths and Displays
Booth and table sizes will vary in size for this event due to the unique setting of the event space (Mann Library). The average sized table will be approximately 5 ft. in length.
Employer signage will be limited to table tops or small self-standing signs only, which can be brought by employers on the day of the event. Due to limited storage space, pre-shipment of fair materials or equipment will be very limited. Any technical equipment (e.g., laptops, tv monitors, extension cords, etc.) are to be brought by the employer.
Any booth demonstrations must adhere to all health, safety, and fire codes and regulations for event management as stipulated by Environmental Health & Safety.
Most tables will be in easy reach of an electrical outlet. Please make sure to indicate in your registration if you need access to an outlet. Remember that you will need to bring your own heavy duty extension cord.
Recruiters are responsible for setting up and tearing down displays, unpacking and repackaging materials, and arranging for return shipping; for details, refer to "Shipping." Career Fair booths may be set up the morning of events, from 8:00—9:30 am, if attending the breakfast. For those employers not attending the breakfast, you may also set up from 9:30 until 11:00, when the fair begins.
Employer Database and Employer Directory
An online searchable database informs students what employers will attend the career fair. During the registration process, you'll enter a description of your organization and other information you'd like students to have in advance of the events (target audiences; work authorization requirements; hiring needs; etc.). You'll also enter a more concise employer overview (650-character maximum) for inclusion in a printed directory distributed to students at the career fair. Please prepare both entries in advance of registration; you will not have the opportunity to revise information once registration is complete. Inclusion in the Employer Directory is limited to employers whose registration is approved by February 1.
Student Agencies offers postering and other services.
