The Career Connection Root Beer Kegger is an outdoor event on the lawn in front of the Rhatigan Student Center. At this event, students will be given a hot dog, IBC root beer and valuable information about the WSU Career Development Center. We anticipate more than 1,500 students in attendance.

As an employer attending the Kegger, you have the opportunity to speak with some of Wichita's best up-and-coming talent, as well as distribute general information regarding your company/organization. This event is not a career fair, so you will not be able to accept resumes or distribute job applications.

In return for your attendance, you will receive:

  • The opportunity to meet and interact with current WSU students
  • Advertising regarding your attendance sent to current WSU students and on the Career Development Center website in the weeks prior to the event
  • A table to distribute information about your company (you will need to provide your own tablecloth)
  • Root beer, water and hot dogs for your representatives at the event

Register to attend this event today! Spaces are limited. Employer sponsors booths are  $400/ea.

Contact Lori Godderz, (316) 978-6568, lori.godderz@wichita.edu, for more information on sponsorship levels and to reserve your space!
