Career Expos

Participate in our job & internship fairs.  All majors (except nursing and education) are combined for events in October and February.  In March we host our annual Education Career Expo connecting you to the prospective students for the next year.  Representatives from business, government and non-profit organizations talk to students about their organizations and introduce students to the career options available in the current job market. Recruit the talent your organization seeks here at Central Missouri.  It’s also a great time to interact with the faculty as they find this a great opportunity to meet you.



This web-based product allows employers to access and update company information, manage/view on-campus interviewing schedules, conduct resume searches of candidates, and post job vacancies.  All students and alumni have access to this system to view/apply to open positions, and to sign up to on-campus recruiting schedules.

On-Campus Interviews

Information Sessions/Classroom Presentations

Face-to-face group time is a wonderful way to share your organization and expertise with a group of students and faculty.  It works effectively as a way to share information needed for those scheduled for upcoming interviews or to promote an upcoming interview schedule.  We will reserve rooms and order necessary equipment and refreshments upon request.  Plan ahead and schedule your date early by calling our office at 660-543-4379.

Mock Interview Weeks

One week, each semester, employers are invited to pick a day (or more if you like!) to come to campus and conduct practice interviews with students.  Mock interviews are a great way to further develop your brand on campus, meet students and help students learn important interview skills.

Recruiting Events and BIG Interview Days

Career Services will host four career events each year. These events allow recruiters to interact with hundreds of students from many degree programs, including the faculty of those programs.  You should receive a registration reminder approximately three months before each event prompting you to register online at  Details on these events are noted under the “ Schedule of Special Events.”

Following our Fall and Spring Career Expos, we host BIG (Business, Industry and Government) Interview Days.  These events allow you to interview students who requested interviews with you, as well as students you meet at the Expos.  This is a convenient way to complete a recruiting visit.  Space is limited for these targeted days so requests are met on a first-come, first served basis. Registration for this event is available when you register for the Career Expos.

Student Organizations

The University of Central Missouri has a variety of student organizations; departmental, honors, social, special interest, etc.  Visit the student organization website.


Corporate Sponsorship of Programs and Events

Each year organizations act as corporate sponsors to our events.  Your organization’s name will be included in event advertising and promotions.  These events and opportunities vary year-to-year and semester-to-semester.  If you would like to discuss opportunities for this type of visibility while connecting students to career development opportunities, please contact Joni Porter at 660.543.4379 or at
