  • Meet hundreds of motivated candidates for your internship & volunteer positions.
  • Benefit from event publicity and promotions.
  • Expand your network by meeting students, connecting with faculty and communicating with representatives from other organizations.

Registration Fee

The fee to participate in the fair will be $35.00. Your $35.00 Registration Fee Includes:

  • 3 x 6 table at the event
  • Wi-Fi if needed
  • 1 vehicle parking permit (additional parking can be purchased on site)
  • Hospitality service (coffee, tea, water)
  • Promotion of your organization prior to the event


Western utilizes its off-campus Lincoln Creek Park-and-Ride, at 800 Lincoln Street, exit 252 off I-5 (see map), for all event participant parking. A “Bellair” shuttle will transport you from the parking lot to the info fair venue. Expect extended wait periods between shuttle runs. There are covered bus stops available for use during wait periods. Please arrive at least an hour (or more!) before the event starts to ensure that you are shuttled and set up at the venue before the doors open to students at 12:00 p.m.

We suggest you register BEFORE October 10 as space is limited. Pre-registration is required for this event and will be available through Viking CareerLink, our online job posting and employer database. In addition to providing easy online event registration, this system also allows you to post internship opportunities as they become available. As you plan ahead to attend the fair, please include posting your open positions as part of that process. Students will be researching internship options prior to meeting you and will be eager to learn about internship opportunities within your organization.
