How do I get to the fair?

For the accounting fair on September 7, you can drive or take the BearLine shuttle to Kentwood Hall.  Kentwood is next door to the Convention Center.

On September 20, special COB Career Fair shuttles will run and students are encouraged to take the shuttles as parking will be limited and there may be a charge.  Two COB Career Fair marked shuttles will pick up students at Bear Park South, Meyer Library and then loop to the Expo Center from 9:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m.  There will be sandwich boards at each location indicating the shuttle stop.

What do I wear to the Fair?

All of the career fair dress guidelines will be outlined in the required workshop.

What if I’m not a business, economics or computer science major?

All College of Business majors and minors can attend the fair as long as they have attended the required workshop. 

What if I am a College of Business alum?

You are welcome to attend the fair but you must contact Vickie Hicks at for specific details and to get permission to attend.

Will there be a LinkedIn photo booth?

Since students will be dressed professionally, we will have a professional head shot photo booth set up at the fair.  Students can get their pictures taken and later purchase them from Photo Services for only $5.
