Career Events and Programs

Missouri State University attracts employers locally, nationwide and globally.  We direct employers to post their opportunities in Handshake.

Employers want to connect with students as they build their talent pipeline for their organizations.  Employers recruit students and alumni for full-time jobs & internships by attending our career fairs, posting jobs & internships in Handshake, reserving recruitment tables on campus, hosting information sessions for students to learn more about their organization, and participating in our Resume Café, Mock Interview, Etiquette Dinner, Speed Networking and other hosted events.

Be on the look out for employers visiting & recruiting this Fall 2022.
