Business Career Fairs and Mixers

The Business Career Fairs in the Bauer College of Business occur each Fall and Spring semester on the University of Houston campus. Please note that the career fair is intended for Bauer business majors only.

Employers interested in attending these events should:

  • Access the Recruiting Events link in their Bauer Career Gateway account (create account first, if necessary)
  • Register for the event(s) in which they are interested

Each Fall and Spring semester, we offer major specific networking events called Pre-Recruiting Mixers. At the mixers, employers can network and meet with students pursuing specific majors, and who are actively seeking internships and/or full-time positions. Typically, the mixers occur on the same day, with one in the morning and one in the afternoon, and take place the week prior to classes beginning. The setup is geared towards networking as each registered employer receives one cocktail sized table. Please contact a member of the Employer Services team for more details.

  • Parking/Directions

    Directions to the University of Houston can be found at Our experience has been that mapquest is not terribly reliable in getting people to campus, so please use our directions. In order to provide more flexibility and lower registration fees to career fair participants, WE ARE NOT ABLE TO VALIDATE PARKING.

    There are two parking garages that you may utilize for the event. Please note the garages are listed in the order of their parking space availability. Therefore, please utilize the East garage first, followed by the Welcome Center garage. Parking spaces are first-come, first-served and carpooling is encouraged. If you have not shipped your items prior to the career fair, we encourage you to drop off your materials at the UH Hilton FIRST before parking your vehicle.
