Career Fairs

Each year, companies come to campus to speak to our classes or to interview students either through our department, the School of Business, or the College of Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources. Often, career fairs are held at each of these locations and PFP students are welcome to come speak with company representatives.

PFP Career Fair

The Personal Financial Planning Department will hold an Interview Session on Wednesday, October 22nd from 8am-5pm at the Stotler Lounge (Memorial Union) on the University of Missouri campus. This event is different than your traditional career fair as it is not a meet and greet event where students walk around to various tables. At this event students sign up in order to schedule an appointment time with prospective companies to either interview for current employment opportunities, or ask questions to learn more about the organization, or to have a mock interview conducted.
