Career Fair Volunteer

There are many ways you can help as a Career Fair volunteer!

To ensure our volunteers are well-informed to answer questions to their volunteer assignment, all volunteers are committed to attend a mandatory training session prior to Career Fair where they will receive detailed assignment instructions, a Career Fair Schedule, exhibitor logistics, and Career Fair policies and procedures.

All assignments are for the day of Career Fair unless specifically noted.  Volunteer time commitment is listed by each assignment. (Times may vary dependent on need)

Set-up Team  Thursday, September 20 (day of event set-up)   | 7:00-8:30 am
Volunteers assist with setting set-up check-in stations and exhibitor booths the day of Career Fair.

Exhibitor Check-in Team   | 7:00-8:30 am
Volunteers assist with directing employers to their assigned exhibit room and where to unload vehicles.

Hospitality Team   | 7:00-9:00 am | 9:00-11:00 am | 11:00 am-2:30 pm
Volunteers assist with monitoring hospitality room, replenishing supplies, assisting with sorting and delivering boxed lunches and beverages to exhibitors.

Door Monitors  | 9:30-11:00 am | 11:00 am-2:00 pm
Volunteers will serve as “bouncers” to ensure all attendees who enter are wearing an official career fair name tag or badge.  Door monitors will redirect students, alumni, general public, faculty, staff, and exhibitors to get an official name tag.  Desired qualities of a door monitor are students who are well-poised and possess good diplomacy skills.

Admission Tables  | 9:00-11:00 am | 11:00 am-2:00 pm
Volunteers will ensure students, alumni, general public, faculty, and staff are signed-in properly to attend Career Fair.  This includes using a swiper, sign-in sheets, providing name tags, handing out a list of employer locations.

Interested in being a volunteer?  Fill out this contact form, contact the Career Development Office at  A sign-up sheet is also available for current WSU Tri-Cities students for easy sign-up convenience.
