Recruiting Events

Regional and national employers love Parkside students because they have a proven work ethic and a genuine interest in contributing to the success of our communities. Take a look at these large-scale events where we are certain that your time spent on our campus will be a great experience.

Each event is unique, but there are some aspects that will always be the same. That includes great customer service, meaningful conversations, and impressive students.

We've compiled some common logistical information all in one place. 

Price includes one 6-foot table and 2 chairs. The tables for the Internship Fair and Career Fair have table clothes, but you are welcome to bring your own. The tables for the Summer Opportunity Fair are not covered, but you may bring your own.

Lunch for two is provided per registration at the Internship Fair and Career Fair. Light refreshments are available at the Summer Opportunity Fair.

Reduced-rate tables for nonprofits are accommodated upon request and pending availability. Documentation may be requested.

We strongly recommend that you post your positions to RangerTrak powered by Handshake, as we share this information with students and campus colleagues in our materials and programming leading up to the events.

Parking restrictions are lifted for participants on the day of the event. We are unable to reserve parking spaces; however, we do provide drop off assistance at the circle drive nearest the event location. More details provided in pre-event communications.
