Why Participate?


Inspire students, expand recruitment opportunities and enhance on-campus presence.


Warrington Career Week is designed to provide companies access to top business students. Attracting over 1,500 business students annually, the event hosts an average of 15 employer sessions daily.

Companies present a 50-minute session on career topic of their choice with a group between 10 to 50 students. Topics range from career paths, diversity in the workforce, interviewing, and company culture. Companies will have opportunities to recruit students for internships and full-time positions, while enhancing on-campus brand visibility. The employer-student mixer provides sponsoring companies a unique way to engage exclusively with top business and accounting students.
