Schedule On-Campus Interviews

The University Career Center provides your organization with professional on-campus recruiting opportunities. You may list career opportunities, internships and part-time jobs through our online recruiting system, HireJayhawks.com. Qualified employers will receive access to our student resume database for web resume viewing. We also will assist you with resume referrals based on your criteria.


We provide professional interview rooms for your on-campus interviews in our facility. Allow three weeks advance notice so that we have ample time to promote your opportunity to students. To reserve space, call Ann Hartley at 785-864-4517, or email ahartley@ku.edu. Email your job description to us, or post the position on HireJayhawks.com. Students who wish to interview will contact you directly and you will arrange interview times with them. About a week before the interview, we will contact you to confirm the interviews and send you parking instructions.


Interview and presentation facilities arranged by UCC are to be used solely to speak with students from the University of Kansas who are eligible for services from UCC or one of the other career service offices.


UCC is committed to ensuring that everyone is afforded the opportunity to participate in our services and activities. If, due to disability, you require accommodation to use our services, please contact our office at 785-864-3624 and let us know how we may assist you.

University Statement on Military Recruitment on Campus

The university has been asked whether ROTC or other military recruiters are allowed to recruit and be present at job fairs on campus. Lynn Bretz, Director of University Communications, issued the following statement for the university:

“The University of Kansas allows military recruitment on campus, as required by federal law. What’s more, the university values ROTC's presence on campus and the service of our citizens in the national defense system. The university also acknowledges that some individuals in our community oppose the ‘Don’t ask, don’t tell’ policy of the U. S. Department of Defense. Those individuals have the right to protest the policy, just as students have the right to choose whether or not to seek career opportunities and service in the military.”
(Note:  The "Don't ask, don't tell" policy was repealed on Sept. 20, 2011)
Learn about the Kansas Work Study Program

The Kansas Work-Study Program (Career Component) is funded by the State of Kansas, through the Board of Regents. The purpose of the program is to help Kansas employers hire university students to work in career-related positions. The student benefits by gaining work experience that enhances the student’s academic program. The employer benefits by being reimbursed for one half of the student’s gross wages.

To participate in the Kansas Career Work-Study Program, employers must meet the following criteria:

  • Have a FEIN (Federal Employee Identification Number)
  • Be a Kansas business using a Kansas bank
  • Be willing to act as the student's employer (students are not employed by our office)

Employers are responsible for interviewing and hiring eligible students.  Before signing a KCWS contract, the employer must employ or be in the process of hiring an eligible student.  Employers may advertise part-time positions for students in HireJayhawks.com.

The amount of the contract is based on the student's hourly wage, the estimated hours per week that the student will work, and the number of weeks that the student will work; Fifty percent of this amount will be reimbursed to the employer; If the estimate is too low, an amendment may be granted if funds are available.

Employers must submit invoices to KCWS at least once a month.  It can take up to four weeks for the reimbursement check to arrive - it is to the employer's benefit to submit invoices in a timely manner
