Careers at Purdue

Today is the day I become part of something that moves the world forward.

Purdue will host a career fair on Tuesday (Nov. 4) geared toward filling custodial, dining, skilled trades and clerical positions at the university.

The event, hosted by Purdue’s human resources talent acquisition area, will be from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 4-7 p.m. at the National Guard Armory, 5218 Haggerty Lane, Lafayette.

Breakout sessions will be held during the fair, including a question-and-answer panel featuring Purdue Human Resources staff and key departmental hiring managers; an overview of the Purdue hiring process; and tips on resume writing and interviewing.

Although registration for the career fair is not required, the first 15 registrants for each session will receive a complimentary resume critique. There will be a sign-up sheet available at the event entrance.

Hiring managers will be on site, so those who have created a profile in Purdue’s online application system may be able to participate in on-the-spot interviews. Computers will also be available for those who would like to immediately apply for open positions.   Those attending the fair also will be able to get information on Purdue benefits, how to apply at Purdue and the job categories available.
