"I am continually inspired by the students who come through the doors at UNC Career Fairs - passionate, excited, and hungry for success.
I have so much success connecting with students and get SUPER excited when I get follow-up thank you emails or applications. These events are exactly why I am so passionate about my position with NRBH!"

Helpful Tips and Guides

Event Policies and Guidelines

The following is important information regarding the Center for Career Readiness' event and policy guidelines for employers.

  • When attending in-person events, consider refraining from greetings that require physical contact, such as handshakes. Instead, consider a wave or a verbal greeting.
  • Remember that all physical contact requires active consent from both parties.
  • Please do not attend or stay at a career fair or career event if you’re feeling sick! Please take care of yourself AND our community by helping to prevent the spread of germs.

Registration Policies

  • We are unable to accept new registrations or changes to registrations 1 week prior to an event, or once an event is full, whichever comes first.
  • Registering for the Job, Internship, & Graduate School Fair or K-12 Educator Employment Day(s) is considered a commitment to attend the event and a table will be reserved for your organization.
    • For cancellations more than 15 business days prior to fair/event date, we will refund the event registration fee, minus a $75 administrative fee. Cancellations within 15 business days of the fair/event date will receive no refund.
    • No refund will be issued if registration does not total more than $75.
    • No refunds are issued due to acts of nature (i.e. flooding, heavy snow, traffic issues, university closure, etc.). 
    • If your organization cancels, or chooses not to attend this event, and has not paid the registration fee, this cancellation policy still applies and the registration fee is still required. Non-payment will result in becoming ineligible to participate in future Center for Career Readiness events at the University of Northern Colorado, including any on campus-recruiting opportunities. 
    • No refunds will be issued for virtual fairs and events. 
  • If registration payment is not received, we reserve the right to cancel an organization’s registration.
  • The Center for Career Readiness office reserves the right to deny access and participation to an employer based on previous experiences of our students and/or our office.

Inclement Weather

In case of inclement weather, please call 970-351-4100. If the university is operating on a regular academic/work schedule or if employees are granted a grace period to arrive, the event will be held as scheduled. Therefore, no requests for release of obligation or refund will be granted. In the rare circumstance that the university is closed (i.e., classes are canceled), the event will be canceled and every attempt will be made to reschedule.
