Information for Employers
Regnier Career Accelerator
This annual February event offers organizations an opportunity to interact with their next new interns or full-time hires. Employers engage UMKC's entrepreneurial students in small group conversations about the firm's culture and career opportunities. Morning connection sessions showcase employers with more than 500 employees while the afternoon sessions focus on the smaller or start-up organizations. The day's activities also include an employer panel discussion with a student audience, lunch, a workshop for employers, a brief student - employer social session, and opportunities for employers to briefly screen candidates one-on-one. For more information and to register for this event, visit Regnier Career Accelerator. This event is co-sponsored by the Regnier Institute for Entrepreneurship & Innovation and the Bloch Career Network.
