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 2, 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. (View photos from last year's event here.)
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 list of participating companies, organizations and professional schools here. (Note: Our office will continue to update this list as registrations are received through the end of February. Check back closer to the event for the most complete and up-to-date list.)
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 our office to discuss these and other preparation tips before the Career and Internship Fair.
Information for Recruiters
your interest in recruiting Hendrix
students and alumni, and we look forward to welcoming you on campus this
spring! Due to the popularity of previous years' events, 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 23. 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,

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!
