THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND: 
  • We require that you have an active job posting within Handshake when requesting an information table.
  • Requests must be submitted at least 3 weeks before you want the information table on campus. This will allow time to advertise for a successful event.
  • Information tables cannot be reserved for the first two weeks of class, during holidays and scheduled university closings, or the last two weeks of the semester. 
  • A six-foot table and 2 chairs will be provided.
  • If a position you are recruiting for includes commission only pay, base pay plus commission or start鈥恥p costs to the employee, signage must be at the table clearly indicating this information at all times. Failure to follow these policies will prevent the employer from future use of our services.
ksu students at job fair event visiting tables

You may request a specific location to meet your recruiting needs. Due to space constraints an employer may not recruit more than twice in one semester using the information table service. While staffing a table, employers are limited to promoting their recruiting opportunities at their table only. No solicitation of products or services is allowed. If you must reschedule your information table date for any reason, you must submit for another date and allow at least 3 weeks for confirmation. KSU reserves the right to change these requirements.

Campus Information Sessions & Presentations

Employers are welcome to host information sessions on campus if you have attended a job fair and/or recruited at KSU in previous semesters. Sessions and presentations can familiarize and promote opportunities and hiring processes to KSU students. If you have met a number of interested candidates and your team would like to provide additional (or next step) information to students as a group, we can check campus space availability and customize your request to fit your recruiting needs. Sessions are typically one hour on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, or Thursdays (between 12-2 pm or 4-6 pm). There is currently no fee for an employer to request this type of recruiting option through our offices, although it is subject to space availability.

 

 **NOTE** VIRTUAL sessions may be more successful for your team and easier to schedule. Virtual sessions allow "on demand" viewing, scheduling more than one session prior to a job fair or "peak recruiting" and is convenient for your team members to present. A virtual event does not require space reservations on campus OR require travel time and expense for potential candidates or your team to participate.
