School of Management Employers Forum

Company Information

With close to 1000 students attending, our career fair is a great opportunity to build your corporate presence at the Krannert School of Management. Why recruit at Krannert/Purdue? Purdue ranked 4th in a Wall Street Journal's job recruiter rankings and #22 in the 2013 U.S. News and World Report rankings.

This event is unique because it is planned and organized entirely by students from the School of Management Employers Forum committee. Because of the hard work and dedication of these students, the Career Fair is a success each year.

The Career Fair consists of three days of events:

  • February 4th (optional)
    • Resume Critiques
    • Company Presentations
    • Networking Event
  • February 5th
    • Student Organization Reverse Career Fair

    • Student Interviews (optional)
