“As the new front door of K-State, the Berney Family Welcome Center will be one of the first university facilities in the country to seamlessly connect future and current student experiences with career opportunities for its graduates,” said Dr. Pat Bosco, V.P. for Student Life and Dean of Students.
With the announcement of the May 2016 move to the Berney Family Welcome Center, Kansas State University’s Career and Employment Services will unite with the Academic and Career Information Center to become the K-State Career Center.
The 2016-2017 school year will be a new experience for hiring K-Staters. Recruiters coming to campus will be able to:
- Offer info sessions in the Theater seating approximately 90 guests.
- Schedule on-campus interviews with larger interview rooms, a number of them equipped with video conferencing capabilities.
- Relax in the exclusive employer lounge furnished with wifi and free printing.
The career readiness of students and strong recruiting interest from industry is part of the reason why 94 percent of last year’s graduating class was employed or enrolled in graduate education within six months of graduation. The K-State Career Center provides the opportunity to grow young people into professionals by connecting them and their skills to the needs of employers recruiting at K-State.
