The Give-Away-Less Fair

Skip the give-aways!

We request all employers' participation in our Give-Away-Less Fair. We love hosting our career fairs, but the events produce a lot of waste. Since this is not a requirement, employers who skip the give-aways will be highlighted in our various marketing materials to students. Please confirm your participation in the Give-Away-Less Fair within your fair registration. If you should have any questions about the Give-Away-Less Fair, please call the Employer Relations Associate at 612-626-9495, or email mathisen@umn.edu.
