KU Career Connections
KU Career Connections is an Internet-based program through which University of Kansas students and alumni can post their resumes, apply for part-time and full-time jobs and internships, sign up for on-campus interviews, request appointments with a career coach, access password protected resources such as Going Global, practicing interviewing via Impress, and more.

To find out about companies that will be coming for on-campus interview but have not yet completed the scheduling process (and thus don't appear in the recruiting list), just stop by 110 Burge Union. If you are interested in an employer who does not conduct on-campus interviews, a video conference interview between a student and employer is an option.
KU Career Connections includes an on-line, searchable database of full-time, part-time, limited term, internship and volunteer position announcements sent to KU. Employers from across the country and the world post announcements.
The University of Kansas also participates in HireKansasTalent - a consortium of Kansas colleges and universities joining together to provide a centralized site for for employers to post jobs that will then be distributed to all of the participating universities. This allows employing organizations to post once to reach even more candidates, with many types of career opportunities. Those opportunities are then viewable by students and alumni on their own school's Career Services website -- for KU students, through KU Career Connections.
Students and alumni of the University of Kansas may participate in on-campus recruiting, post resumes to the KU web database and view all job announcements. To register, download and fill out the registration form (student form (pdf) / alumni form (pdf)) and send it to University Career Center.
