The University of Arkansas Part-Time Job Fair is a great way to connect with our students who are looking to get work experience while attending school.

These "student-friendly" employers would be open to working around student's school schedules and requirements as well as providing our students with an opportunity to get experience. As a reminder, off-campus jobs must comply with our policies and guidelines (no door-to-door or private residential jobs). This fair is open to ALL U of A students and is held during the first weeks of the semester, also known as "Welcome Weeks".

This venue also provides companies branding opportunities on a campus with over 32,000 students representing 103 undergraduate majors and 168 graduate programs.

During registration, you'll be asked to determine from a list the top 3 challenges your organization helps to solve!
