Company Information

General Information and Agenda for attending company representatives

Parking: Grant Street Garage

If you are staying in the Union Club Hotel in PMU, your parking is included. You will need to take a parking ticket to get in. Each company will receive two parking passes when you register.  These passes will enable you to exit the parking garage as it  covers the cost of your parking.

The Purdue Memorial Union (PMU) is located directly across Grant Street from the parking garage. Take the stairs up to the main floor of the PMU.

Company registration is located to the right about midway down the hallway. (South Entrance to the ballrooms.)  You will pick up a name tag, parking pass (2/company), Boiler Express card which can be used downstairs at the Starbucks or other Union food services located in the basement of the union, and conference folder.

Interview schedules: For companies that will be interviewing on Wednesday, September 24th, you will also receive blank interview schedule sheets to fill during the career fair.  Your interview room location will be included on the sheet.

A student host will be available to assist you with your career fair booth set-up in the North Ballroom.
