Career Fairs

Students gain a competitive edge with companies that travel to Krannert to recruit our talent. We also encourage our students to participate in campus-wide and national career fairs.

THE SCHOOL OF MANAGEMENT EMPLOYERS FORUM (SMEF)

The School of Management Employers Forum is a distinguished campus organization that seeks to serve students by implementing a multitude of events, programs, and career fairs in order to connect the student body with professional opportunities, elevate Krannert as an institution, and inspire tomorrow’s business leaders.

With more than 1500 students attending, our fall and spring career fair is a great opportunity to build your corporate presence at the Krannert School of Management. This event is unique because it is planned and organized entirely by students from the School of Management Employers Forum committee. Because of the hard work and dedication of these students, the Career Fair is a success each year.

Registration is a 2 step process and both steps must be completed for you to be officially registered. Registration includes: admission to the career fair (1-4 reps MAX), recruiter luncheon and one 3′ x 6′ table. The optional presentations, resume critiques, and student interviews are also included. There are additional sponsorship opportunities that increase your visibility and support Krannert student career development.

Registration for our fall (September) career fair begins in May and registration begins in November for our spring (February) career fair.  More information can be found at https://krannertsmef.com/
