The University of Central Oklahoma will host its Fall Career and Internship Fair from noon to 3:30 p.m. Sept. 17 in the ballrooms on the third floor of Central’s Nigh University Center.

Businesses and organizations interested in reserving booth space should register online at www.hirebronchos.com or contact Career Services by 5 p.m. Sept. 10.

Presented by Central’s Career Services department, students will have the opportunity to make contacts and connect with many local and national organizations interested in hiring Central students and graduates.

Organizations including Devon Energy, the Oklahoma Department of Human Services, Love’s Travel Stops and Country Stores, Paycom and the United States Probation Office are registered for the fair. Each employer will provide attendees with information about career and internship opportunities within their organizations.

“The fair is a great way to learn about a variety of opportunities and employers who will be offering part-time jobs, internship and full-time positions. There will also be a number of graduate and professional schools attending this event,” said Elizabeth Enck, manager of Career Services at Central.

“It’s a great way to get to interact in person with representatives from a wide range of industries who are here specifically looking to recruit UCO students.”

Professional attire is required for entry, and the fair is free and open to the public. Participants are encouraged to bring several copies of their resumes.
