LEXINGTON, Ky. (Feb. 6, 2022) — The University of Kentucky’s HireBlue Spring Career Fairs are just around the corner, and with them comes the unique opportunity to connect with over 250 local, regional and national employers from a wide variety of industries. 

The Engineering, Computer Science, and STEM Career Fair will take place on Feb. 21.

The Business, Communications, Liberal Arts, and All Majors Internship and Career Fair will take place on Feb. 22.

All Career Fairs will be held in the Gatton Student Center ballrooms from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. 

UK’s career fairs allow students to personally network with employers and explore the wide range of possibilities available to them through internships, co-ops and job opportunities. Students from all academic majors and graduating classes are encouraged to attend — employers are looking forward to interacting with a diverse pool of students. 

Students and alumni are encouraged to download the Career Fair Plus app from the App Store or Google Play to research employers, keep up with fair announcements, and explore interactive event maps that will go live the week before the fairs. 

The spring semester career fairs are brought to you by the Office for Student Success and are a partnership between the Career and Co-op Office in the College of Engineering, the Graham Office of Career Management in the Gatton College of Business and Economics, and the Stuckert Career Center.
