About & Key Dates
MPA Career Fair
Friday, August 22, 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium, UT-Austin
Held just before the fall semester begins, the MPA Career Fair provides an opportunity for you to be among the first to recruit Texas MPA students. With limited employer slots and expected attendance of 120 students, this tailored event allows participants to have targeted and meaningful interactions. The majority of attending students will graduate in 2015. While some are seeking internships, most are interested in full-time positions.
Registered organizations are invited to bring company giveaway items, signage and literature to this event. Each organization will be assigned an eight-foot table with cloth and two chairs. Prior to the fair, MPA Career Services will host a brunch meeting to provide information on the incoming class, the latest employment statistics and a student panel on best practices in recruiting. Registrants will be the first to access the Fall 2014 MPA Resume Book. The publication will be emailed to the primary contact at each registered organization prior to the MPA Career Fair.
