There are numerous ways to promote your career opportunities at NKU!
NKU hosts several career fairs throughout the academic year. There are several fall career fairs, with specialized areas of focus. The spring offers the biggest single career fair of the year (Career Expo) plus the education-focused career fairs.
Because space is limited, NKU's career fairs are limited to employers recruiting for internship/co-op and full-time/degree-required positions. Employers register for NKU's career fairs via Handshake. For dates and details, click here.
Handshake is your one-stop shop for posting your positions at NKU! As a self-service resource, Handshake allows you to manage your available positions (and see your past positions), schedule on-campus interviews, register for career fairs, search for qualified
candidates, and email a targeted group of students inviting them to apply.

Career Services offers numerous interview rooms for your on-campus interviews. The best option is to schedule an on-campus interview date in conjunction with your career fair attendance, so you can promote the date (and schedule students for interviews) at your career fair table. The most popular times for on-campus interviews are the two to three weeks following each career fair.
If interested, submit an on-campus recruiting request via Handshake or contact Amanda Meeker, Associate Director, for assistance. Amanda can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 859-572-1543.

Information Sessions can be held in conjunction with an on-campus interview or on their own. We recommend inviting students via Handshake as well as faculty, as they can assist in directing students toward your opportunities.

If you are interested in an Information Session, contact Amanda Meeker, Associate Director, at email@example.com or 859-572-1543.
Information tables provide employers with an opportunity to build brand presence on campus, to distribute job applications and other materials, and to provide information to a variety of students. Information tables are scheduled during the lunch rush in our Student Union building, 2nd Floor Lobby, from 10 am - 2 pm, primarily on Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday.
This option is effective for positions exhibiting one or more of the following characteristics:
