If you are choosing to ship packages to UNL ahead of the fair, please schedule them to arrive no earlier than Monday, March 27th, 2023.
The pre-fair shipping address is:
UNL Career Fair – *ORGANIZATION NAME*
Attn: Career Services
1400 R Street, Room 225
Lincoln, NE 68588
If you shipped packages to our office ahead of the fair, your packages should be waiting at your booth when you arrive. If you have any issues locating your previously shipped packages, talk to a staff member located at the Career Services Info booth near the Check-In Station.
If you are needing to ship packages after the fair, packages can be dropped off at convenient nearby downtown shipping locations. If you are unable to drop off your packages and need to schedule a package pick-up, you must adhere completed shipping labels to all packages to be shipped and call your provider to request a pick-up. Career Services will not ship packages on your behalf.
Once you have called to schedule a package pick-up you can place the package at the designated area inside of the Career Services office (room 225). For a scheduled pick up location, use the following address: University Career Services, 1400 R Street, Room 225, Lincoln, NE 68588
This spring, UNL was selected to test out a brand new feature that would allow students to “check-in” to your booths at the career fair. When you get to the career fair, you’ll find a QR code at your booth. After the fair, you’ll be able to download a list of all students who checked into your booth as well as provide you with key information and a copy of their resume should they have it public.
While this is not mandatory, we highly encourage using this feature to make it easier to follow up with students you met with during the fair. We are in the pilot stages of this program so we appreciate your patience and grace with us as we partner with Handshake to roll out this new system. It’s also important to note you will NOT need to print off your QR code ahead of time. We will have them for you at your table.
Here is an example provided by Handshake as to what your fair registration will look like after the fair. You might not be able to see it now, but as the fair gets closer it should be available. If you have any questions or issues, please reach out to Courtney Strayer.
UNLOADING & PARKING
Below is a map to show you where to park your car for the fair. Unlike other fairs, we will not be having display drop-offs due to the smaller size of the event. If you would like to bring your items upstairs first before parking your car, there are several meters in front of the union that are for use (subject to availability).
Once you have parked, you will head to the front of the Nebraska Union and head to the back side of the building, looking for the large circular staircase. Head up those stairs or take the elevator to the left, and our team will be excited to welcome you and get you checked in and provide you with parking validation to use at the end of the day.
A few days out from the fair, you will be able to find your place on the map using the links below.
Booths are placed on a first paid, first serve basis. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out.
