Recruiter Check-In

Registration packets and interview schedules may be picked up at the company Check-In desk located in the Meridian Health Science Center Auditorium. Use the Training Center entrance and follow the exhibit signs. Volunteers will be available Thursday morning to assist you in bringing exhibit equipment into the Company Exhibition. 

Company Exhibit, Auditorium

Company representatives are given exhibit space where students can learn more about your company. The first hour of the exhibit is for fourth year students only, then it becomes open to all students.

The cost of the exhibit is $300.00 which includes a six foot table with black table cloth in the exhibit area with other recruiters. Power equipment is available upon request (See Company Registration).

Interview Space, COP Offices

The College provides an opportunity for recruiters to meet individually with students. Nearly 75 fourth-year professional students completing advanced practice experiences return to campus each year for the Pharmacy Fair. In addition, approximately 150 first, second or third year professional students may schedule interviews with recruiters.

The cost of the first interview space is $450.00 which includes space for Thursday afternoon, Friday morning and afternoon. Additional interview spaces are available at a rate of $150.00 each. Each space is given one student interview schedule. Student interviews are scheduled for 25 minutes, and allow a 5 minute break between interviews. 

Sponsorships are a great way to make your company stand out from the crowd. Sponsors will be recognized in our schedule of events, and on our website as well as during the sponsored event. Sign up to sponsor an event when you register your company.
