The campus-wide career fair of the spring semester brings together all students, all majors, and all colleges and introduces a wide variety of organizations interested in hiring full-time and internship positions. It is also a great event for undergraduates to network and develop contacts for future employment opportunities. The OU Spring Career Fair is co-sponsored by Career Services, American Indian Student Life, African American Student Life, Latino Student Life, and Asian American Student Life.
Dress professionally and bring your student ID to check-in and copies of your resume to distribute to employers.
Before the Career Fair

When you check in at the career fair, a name tag will be printed with the name, major, and graduation date on your HIREsooner page; therefore, make sure your HIREsooner page has your correct major and graduation date listed. If you have questions, please call Career Services at 325-1974.
Get your resume critiqued at Career Services and uploaded to HIREsooner.
Once your resume is ready, upload it to your HIREsooner page to be included in the OU Online Resume Books for employers to view prior to the career fair.

Interviews will be held the day after the career fair
On the day following the Spring Career Fair, employers may choose to interview candidates they have met at the career fair. You will be notified by the employer if you are chosen for an interview the following day. These interviews will be held in Career Services in the Oklahoma Memorial Union.
Interviews later in the Spring
Many of the employers will return to campus later in the semester to interview for full-time and internship positions in the Career Services office. They will let you know when they will be back to interview and will let you know the last day you can apply. These on-campus interviews will be listed in your HIREsooner account. To apply, activate your HIREsooner page with Career Services, upload a resume, and apply for the interviews you want. HIREsooner will notify you, by email, if you are selected for an interview. Once you know you have been selected you will be prompted to go back into your HIREsooner account and sign up for an interview time. You may begin applying for on-campus interviews at the beginning of the SPRING semester.
