This year’s Part-Time Job Fair will take place 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 12, at the Gatton Student Center Social Staircase. Come out and find employers from on and off-campus who want to hire students and are willing to work with your schedule. All UK students are invited and encouraged to participate. 

Student-friendly employers who are eager to hire will be set up, ready to talk about their part-time job opportunities. Employers attending include Coca-Cola, Fayette County Public Schools, Rupp Arena, and many more. A full list of employers can be found on Handshake on the Part-Time Job Fair event page.

As the state’s flagship, land-grant institution, the University of Kentucky exists to advance the Commonwealth. We do that by preparing the next generation of leaders — placing students at the heart of everything we do — and transforming the lives of Kentuckians through education, research and creative work, service and health care. We pride ourselves on being a catalyst for breakthroughs and a force for healing, a place where ingenuity unfolds. It's all made possible by our people — visionaries, disruptors and pioneers — who make up 200 academic programs, a $476.5 million research and development enterprise and a world-class medical center, all on one campus.   

In 2022, UK was ranked by Forbes as one of the “Best Employers for New Grads” and named a “Diversity Champion” by INSIGHT into Diversity, a testament to our commitment to advance Kentucky and create a community of belonging for everyone. While our mission looks different in many ways than it did in 1865, the vision of service to our Commonwealth and the world remains the same. We are the University for Kentucky.
