SPRING 2021 RECRUITING IS IN FULL SWING!

With a delayed start to spring semester, February is going to be a busy month for spring recruiting. Don’t miss out on the upcoming career fairs and networking events! We have a full list of career-related events for you this month—check them out!

SPRING 2021 VIRTUAL KELLEY ALL BUSINESS CAREER FAIR

Mark your calendars! The Spring 2021 Virtual Kelley All Business Career Fair is on Monday, February 15, from 2p.m. – 6p.m. EST and the registration is now OPEN! Don’t forget to check-out career fairs hosted by other IU Schools/Departments. As an IU Kelley student, you may attend any career fairs hosted by the University.

PART 1 OF WANT AN INTERNSHIP OR JOB?:
NETWORK WITH EMPLOYERS!

Many employers are excited and waiting to virtually meet interested students throughout the semester. Make connections, ask questions, and network to increase your chances of being noticed and hired through information sessions and Employer Networking Nights! Schedules available on Handshake. Be ready to sign-up for a group or one-on-one session and don’t forget to REGISTER in advance!

PART 2 OF WANT AN INTERNSHIP OR JOB?:
SUBMIT YOUR RESUME TO UCS RESUME BOOKS

Are you a sophomore, junior, or senior looking for opportunities? Follow these steps to be included in the UCS resume books that will be shared directly with employers who are hiring. These resume books will be active throughout the semester, so if your status changes (accepted an offer or are no longer seeking) make sure to withdraw your application so your resume will no longer be included. Employers request resumes of candidates still seeking as hiring needs arise, so be sure to upload your resume as soon as possible to help maximize your hiring chances!
