Firm Information

Thank you for your firm's interest in our annual UNL College of Architecture Internship / Career Fair!

It has been a great year for the college seeing student work recognized internationally through awards and publications, and we are excited to connect you with these emerging professionals. Registration will be $100 per day, and we are limited to a total of 32 slots per day - so don’t wait! 

Our Internship / Career Fair is a convenient and efficient opportunity for your firm to meet with multiple UNL students in a short period of time, and for you to get to know each other on a personal level.

Pre-event logistics: Office registrations will be handled internally through the College of Architecture. We have removed the online registration through Handshake as well as the review of student applicants prior to the event. We will be forwarding a link for a ‘Look Book’ to registered offices which will have sample portfolios and contact information from students allowing you to preview and preselect those you would like to connect with at the fair. If desired, you can also contact them prior to the event to schedule an interview with them.

Event Format: This year’s format will offer flexibility and the opportunity for you to meet several students. The morning of both days (9 am-12pm) will be exhibition style where students will be able to walk around and meet you informally at your booth. Following a networking lunch, the afternoon (1-5pm) will consist of 20 minute interviews similar to past years’ events. The interview schedule will be in your control and you can make arrangements to connect with those you meet in the morning, or to pre-schedule interview times with students you have connected with prior to the event through the Look Book.

Your firm is invited to send as many as three representatives for each interview space. Each interview space will have a table, and enough chairs for your team and one student. We will provide pin-up surfaces for display materials, electrical service, and access to our Wi-Fi network. If your firm is planning to interview a mix of students, i.e. per degree program, summer internship or full-time employment, or more than 12 students in one day, you are encouraged to register for more than one interview booth.
