Kinesiology Career Fair
From Tuesday, October 26 through Thursday, October 28, the University of Michigan School of Kinesiology—an international leader in education and research in health, wellness, and sport management—will host its first-ever Fall Career Fair.
Kinesiology undergraduate and graduate student attendees will be seeking employment, internship, volunteering, or job shadow opportunities.
Employers will have the opportunity to meet with students virtually during two self-selected 90-minute time blocks between Tuesday, October 26 and Thursday, October 28, from the schedule listed below.
All times are Eastern (EDT)
|Tues., Oct. 26||Wed., Oct. 27||Thurs., Oct. 28|
The first 30 minutes of each session is dedicated to an employer-hosted information session with a group of students. It will be followed by 60 minutes of uninterrupted employer conversations with individual students. The hour-long sessions will take place in virtual meeting rooms with a “waiting room” function allowing students and employers to engage in brief (5-10 minute) one-on-one chats. This format will allow students to learn more about the employers and provide employers the opportunity to become more familiar with students and their proficiencies.
As a participating employer, you will have the opportunity to meet Kinesiology undergraduate and graduate students during two 90-minute blocks. Employers will be asked to select two preferred and two alternate 90-minute time blocks on the registration form.
To reduce scheduling conflicts and guarantee maximum student participation, we will do our best to schedule employers in their preferred blocks without conflicting with other employers recruiting for similar opportunities or for students with similar interests.
The School of Kinesiology will provide employers a Zoom link and any support needed throughout the process.
Employer Participation Fee
- For-profit organizations: $100
- Non-profit/government organizations or University of Michigan departments: $25
Credit card payment is accepted via the registration form. Employer participation fees are added to a fund which awards financial support to students to help defray the costs of unpaid or underpaid internships.
Register at myumi.ch/jxMAK by October 3, 2021. You'll receive schedule and tech information by October 12, 2021.
