2023 WKU Camp & Recreation Job Fair
The WKU Recreation, Park, and Nonprofit Administration academic program is pleased to announce the reboot of its annual job fair. The Camp, Recreation, and Related Professions Job Fair is the perfect opportunity for employers to recruit talented students looking for rewarding positions (part-time, full-time, internships, seasonal).
Camp and recreation agencies typically offer a variety of jobs in many different areas (i.e. recreation, event planning and management, sports, youth leadership, music, art, technology, 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.
We are grateful to all of the employers who have registered to participate in our 2023 job fair.
