PFP Career Fair

PFP will hold a Career Fair/Interview Session on Wednesday, October 21, 2015 from 8:00am - 5:00pm in Stotler Lounge (Memorial Union) on the University of Missouri campus. This event is different than traditional career fairs, as it is not a meet and greet event where students walk around to various tables. At this event students sign up with Dr. Ivey in order to schedule an appointment time with employers to either interview for current employment opportunities or ask prospective employers questions to learn more about their organization, or have a mock interview conducted.

Become a Friend for Financial Success

Posted: July 13, 2011

The Office for Financial Success has been given an opportunity to make a greater impact on our students and community by moving to an expanded and more prominent location in Stanley Hall. Renovations will provide a contemporary, effective learning environment for students and create additional offices for faculty. The cost will be upwards of $200,000. This tremendous opportunity must be pursued and we have until September 1, 2011 to raise the necessary funds. We cannot do this alone and we must turn to our alumni, friends, and industry for support.

I, respectfully, ask you to consider becoming a Friend for Financial Success by making a gift of $25,000 through an outright gift or pledge to the OFS Renovation Project. To demonstrate my faith in the efficacy of this project through a personal commitment, I will match 2.5% of all donations, up to $5,000, from my personal funds. We have until September 1.

- Robert O. Weagley, PhD, CFP®
