Notification will be sent Monday or Tuesday prior to the career fair.

Customized Banner Ad in Directory App: $300
Want to increase quality traffic during the Career Fair and get the best candidates? Banner Ads are the best way to get candidates’ attention prior to the fair. On average 75% of candidates attending the fair use the app to research employers and prepare. Help candidates discover why you are the right employer by getting them to read your profile and learn something about you prior to the fair. All banner ads must be purchased by Friday, September 21st and finalized by Friday, September 28th. We will work together with you to finalize the design.


 

 

 


Organization General Announcement: $150
Think of this as a half-page or quarter-page ad in your traditional print directory, but instead it is in a mobile app platform with text only. Your organization may purchase a general announcement which will be featured in the mobile career fair directory apps announcements tab. The Job & Internship Fair Coordinator will be in touch with you regarding the specification for your announcements. All announcements must be purchased and finalized by Friday, September 28th.
