The WKU Recreation Administration program is pleased to reboot it's annual job fair.
The WKU Camp & Recreation Job Fair will be held on Feb. 12, noon-3pm, E.A. Diddle Arena (2nd floor) Stansbury Concourse. https://www.wku.edu/recreation/jobfair.php
This event will provide WKU students the perfect opportunity to meet with employers offering rewarding positions (part-time, full-time, internships, seasonal).
Camp and recreation agencies typically offer a variety of jobs in many different areas (i.e. sports, recreation, event planning and management, youth leadership, ministry, recreation/sport skills instruction, aquatics, equestrian, etc.). This diversity greatly increases the likelihood of students finding a position that fits their interests and complements their area of study.
The event is open to all WKU students.
