The career fair is open to all KU students, but employers will primarily focus on making connections with students in engineering, computing and the hard sciences.
The Engineering Career Center, which organizes the event, has scheduled several activities to help students prepare for the career fair. A list of activities is available at the ECC office, 1001 Eaton Hall. Students are also invited to attend Trivia Game Night from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 11, in the Eaton Hall atrium.
