Dedicated to connecting students with potential employers, the University of Central Missouri Career Services Center is hosting upcoming events that will bring a wide variety of private companies, non-profit organizations and government agencies to campus to inform and recruit students.

Included are two upcoming career events in the Multipurpose Building Arena, beginning with the Spring 2020 Career Expo from 1-4 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 12. This is a general career expo, open to all majors and industries. Additionally, from 1 to 3 p.m. Monday, March 9, Career Services will host the Education, Healthcare and Human Services event, specific to individuals who are interested in those career fields and related industries.

These career events are an ideal time for students to meet professionals in their industry or major, ask questions, distribute resumes and explore a multitude of career opportunities. All students are encouraged to attend, regardless of class status.

Underclassmen will find these events beneficial as they provide an outlook on the job market. Juniors and seniors, or anyone interested in pursuing employment (full-time or internship) opportunities also should bring several copies of their resume. In addition to a wide range of employers, graduate and professional schools will be in attendance to answer questions about their programs and application processes. Professional attire is encouraged.

On Thursday, Feb. 13, the day after the Spring 2020 Career Expo, Career Services will host on-campus interviews. Students who wish to participate in on-campus interviews must meet with an employer at the expo and follow the employer’s application/interview process.
