Mock Interviews & Resume Reviews 

Employer participation in mock interviews and resume reviews through the ECC is a win-win.  Our students gain confidence and are better prepared for the job search process, and you will have the opportunity to promote your organization while previewing future candidates. Volunteer to conduct mock interviews or resume reviews.

Employer Panels and Workshops

Employer panels, lunch and learns, and workshops are scheduled each semester to connect students with experienced professionals to share expertise on industry trends, career advice and professional development strategies. Let us know you are interested in hosting an employer workshop or being a panelist.

Jayhawks on the Job

Jayhawks on the Job is an event organized by the School of Engineering that allows students to “shadow” an engineering or computing professional during the course of a workday. Sign up to be a Jayhawks on the Job host site today.

Leadership Challenge

Leadership Challenge is a seminar designed to help students develop their leadership potential through formal programming and collaborative learning. This unique opportunity was created by the Business and Engineering Career Services Advisory Councils and is sponsored each year by many corporate affiliates. Students are selected to attend through a competitive application process. The seminar teaches leadership skills through interactive group work to inspire learning while building valuable relationships. In addition to gaining leadership skills, the student attendees have a distinctive opportunity to network with leaders in their respective fields. Participation in Leadership Challenge allows an organization to connect with top business and engineering students, advertise their brand to potential recruits, and impact the next generation of employees.

Evening with Industry

Prior to every fall engineering and computing career fair, IHAWKe Diversity & Women's Programs hosts Evening with Industry. This formal dinner and keynote address prepares students and employers for the career fair activities the following day. Employers network with 150+ motivated students to gain a sneak peak of the available KU talent.  Registration for this event is $250 per company and can be accessed on the fall career fair registration.  Learn more.

Trivia Game Night

Trivia Game Night is hosted by the Engineering Student Council the evening before the spring engineering and computing career fair.  TGN is a great opportunity for employers to network with KU engineering students in a fun and casual setting.  It is free to register and can be selected when completing your spring career fair registration form.
