HOW TO PREPARE:

You should dress professionally (suit is best, but business casual is acceptable - no jeans, t-shirts, caps, athletic shoes, etc.), bring multiple copies of your resume and your ALL CARD, and be prepared to speak with employers. If you have a tight budget, see Professional Clothing Resources.

Be sure to check out our Spring Programs 2019 - COMING SOON (workshops covering resumes, job searching, etc.) and visit Career Services (UC 225) to have your resume reviewed.  Walk-in hours (no appointment necessary) are Mon., 3:30-5:30 p.m.; Wed., 9-11 a.m.; and Th., 2:30-4 p.m., or you may call 859-572-5680 for an appointment. If you cannot attend a resume workshop, see our Resume Preparation Guide.

IMPORTANT: Upload your resume to HireNKU by Tues., Feb. 26 so it can be accessed by employers.

To upload your resume, click "My Documents" under the "My Account" tab on the HireNKU header.

Please bring your ALL CARD to Career Expo so that a nametag can be quickly printed for you that day. To ensure your nametag has your name, major, and graduation date listed correctly, you MUST update your profile on HireNKU (also under "My Account").
