What is it?
Lumberjacks, Devils and Wildcats will gather for the 2nd Annual, just-in-time career mixer. The event is tailored to students and alumni of Arizona’s three fine state institutions and the companies that are interested in keeping university talent local.
Hosted by UA Career Services in partnership with the UA Alumni Association, Arizona’s Career Mixer brings together the talented students of all three State Universities who may be just beginning their job search or looking for that next dream job. We welcome all companies and organizations that have immediate full-time and internship hiring needs in Arizona, and professional associations interested in educating quality candidates about the great opportunities in industries and professions in Arizona organizations. We're literally connecting the best.
This is a mixer format (not your traditional career fair format/venue) with the focus on personal interaction and small group conversation. Each employer will host a high-top table with limited room for promotional material. No banners, signage or large promotional items are permitted. We will also project employer logos on a large screen (via PowerPoint) during the event.
We encourage you to help engage the crowd and try to avoid lines forming. Students/Alumni have been encouraged to exchange business cards and resumes.
Suggested attire is "best business" (respecting Phoenix's summer heat).
Date, Place & Time
Wednesday, May 29th, from 4:30 – 7:30PM, at the Virginia G. Piper Auditorium at the University of Arizona College of Medicine – Phoenix, which is located at 600 E. Van Buren, Building 2.

All three university Career Services offices will be promoting this event to their students and alumni. However, a mixer is not meant to be huge; therefore we have a limited space in the auditorium for both employers and job seekers.

Can material be shipped?
We discourage shipping materials since we do not have adequate space for banners, signs or large promotional items. We will have event staff on hand to help you move material from your cars to the venue.
