Lindenwood University’s Department of Nonprofit Administration will host a Reverse Career Fair from 3 to 5 p.m. on Tuesday, April 8, on the St. Charles campus. All participating students will be recent or upcoming graduates of the school’s nonprofit administration degree program who will host stations designed to highlight their professional skills.
Students will answer questions about their experiences, distribute resumes, and greet employer representatives. Recruiters and hiring managers will have the opportunity to approach individual booths and informally screen potential applicants.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for our students to meet a full range of nonprofit professionals with backgrounds in volunteer management, budgeting and finance, strategic planning, grant writing, fundraising, program development, board relations, and more,” said event organizer Julie Turner, PhD, associate professor and chair of the Lindenwood’s Nonprofit Administration Department. “Employers will benefit from the format because they aren’t burdened by formal interview and application processes that can sometimes slow their search for qualified employees.”
The reverse career fair is free to recruiters and hiring managers who represent viable, paid opportunities in nonprofit or closely related fields. Additional details will be provided closer to the date of the event.
Employers who wish to participate in the inaugural event must complete and submit a registration form by Wednesday, March 19. Forms can be obtained by contacting Turner at firstname.lastname@example.org.
