Keep the best university talent local
May 29th, 2013
What is it?
Lumberjacks, Devils and Wildcats are invited to attend the 2nd Annual just-in-time career mixer. The event is tailored for students and alumni of Arizona’s three fine state institutions and the companies that are interested in keeping local talent local.
Hosted by UA Career Services in partnership with the UA Alumni Association, Arizona’s Career Mixer meets both reality and demand. The reality:
- Many students wait until after graduation to job search
- The average job seeker only stays in a position for three years
- Demand that most companies operate on is a just-in-time hiring cycle, often unable to project their hiring needs months in advance.
Consider the benefit of having all three state universities' talent in one room promoting networking not only with hiring companies, but with the alumni and students from all three of Arizona's state institutions? We’re 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. The format of Arizona's Career Mixer will promote meaningful conversation between job seekers and potential employers. We encourage business card and resume exchange.
We encourage you to research the registered employers list. Suggested attire is "best business" (respecting Phoenix's summer heat).
