Career and Internship Fair

Hendrix College Career and Internship Fair
Thursday, March 6, 2014
11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Worsham Hall - Student Life and Technology Center


The Office of Career Services is happy to announce that it will host its annual Career and Internship Fair on Thursday, March 6, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Student Life and Technology Center.  Armed with a Hendrix liberal arts education, a wide-ranging skill set, and an impressive portfolio of academic achievements and active learning experiences, our students and alumni stand out as promising candidates for competitive career and internship opportunities.  Our goal for this event is to create an exciting atmosphere where students and alumni may meet with a variety of recruiters to discuss current or future employment and internship opportunities and build mutually beneficial connections.

Information for Students and Alumni

We encourage attendance by all students – regardless of your class level, academic background, or where you are in your career search – and job-seeking alumni.  Whether you plan to actively seek a job or internship during this event, or if you’re just curious about finding out what options might be out there, don’t miss this great opportunity to build valuable connections with recruiters who are interested in hiring Hendrix students and alumni!  While most of the representatives who attend this event are typically based in the Arkansas area, the companies and organizations they represent often times have locations across the United States and around the world.  A select number of professional schools will be present, as well.  View the updated list of participating companies and organizations as they register here.

And don’t forget that you can make a great first impression by bringing copies of your resume and dressing appropriately.  Schedule an appointment with a Career Services staff member to discuss these and other preparation tips before the Career and Internship Fair.

Information for Recruiters

We appreciate your interest in recruiting Hendrix students and alumni, and we look forward to welcoming you on campus this spring!  Due to the popularity of last year's event, we must cap this year's fair at 45 registrants.  Please reserve your space as soon as possible by completing our online registration form no later than Thursday, February 27.  The registration fee is $50 through January 31; it will increase to $75 in February.  This fee includes a table at the event, complimentary parking, light refreshments, and lunch for two guests.  An additional $10 fee will be added to your total for each additional representative beyond two.  Registration confirmation and payment instructions will be sent shortly after submitting the form.  Additional information about directions, parking, and other day-of-event details will arrive via email the week prior to the event.

We anticipate a wide variety of students attending the fair.  Some will attend with resume in hand ready to discuss their qualifications and how they can help your company or organization achieve its goals.  Others will be in more of an “exploratory” mode in which they are beginning to familiarize themselves with what may be available to them upon graduation, or when they might like to do an internship.  Whether you have immediate hiring needs or you’re looking for some longer-term “prospects” to begin a dialogue with, we know that you’ll enjoy meeting our bright students. We look forward to working with you on this wonderful opportunity!
